I bought an old Yamaha 103 a couple weeks ago, and am having a ball ACTUALLY PLAYING TUBA again; but as the chops come back I notice more and more that there are intonation problems all over this horn. The main tuning slide moves freely enough to make all the necessary corrections, but I can't reach the darn thing easily. I'd like to look into getting a trigger or 'stick' added. Does anyone know a tech in the Dallas area that has the necessary skills? Don't EVEN bother suggesting Brook Mays, they do a fine job putting school horns back into playable condition, but that seems to be about it now. Also, what should something like this cost? Thanks.
