If you haven't talked to Roy recently, as in the last couple of months, you might want to give him another shot. I took my horn to him in July and I talked extensively with him about his trumpet and trombone manufacturing business. I had heard a rumor that he wasn't going to do repair work on tubas anymore and I wanted to know from him if that was true. Like you, I haven't found anyone else in the southeast that I would trust to work on my instruments. Luckily, he confirmed to me that he was going to continue to work on tubas. He has sold some of his dent equipment so he can't do all the things he used to do but something like a valve porting should be easy to arrange. He specifically told me that I could suggest him to people that needed repairs in this area so I'm assuming he'll probably be able to work on your horn. Good luck!
