Hi again, and thanks very much for your reply with additional information.

Please allow me a little while to research this information for you.

Your patience is appreciated!

Hi again,

Try this one: http://www.craigchristman.com/repairs.htm scroll down to the bottom of the site to email him.

I'm still searching for more, in your area.

Thank you for your efforts; I was lost trying to find a professional who repairs padless saxophones. I've even been in contact with the Selmer factory in France. I just need someone "much" closer.
Hi again, and you're most welcome!

I understand completely! Please allow me to continue with my search concentrating on repair people who specialize in this type of saxophone, and I will let you know what I am able to find for you.

Would you be willing to ship the saxophone to someone who could repair it, in Florida (or another nearby State), if there is no one in your immediate area of Inverness?

Your patience is appreciated!

Regards,
Cher

Yes. But, I would rather have a repair shop that I can drive to; even if it is 3 or 4-hours distance. Thank you.
Hi again, and thanks for your reply.

I understand. I'll continue my search and let you know what I am able to find for you.

Thanks for your patience.

Hi again,

After much research, I found this list of stores that sell and repair Selmer instruments, within 100 miles of your location. You would have to call the ones closest to you and ask if they specifically repair padless saxophones: http://www.conn-selmer.com/dealerlocator/search_detail.php

I'm not sure if the link will take you to the exact page I found, so I'm including the information below. You can always go to that link and change your search to within 200 miles, since you mentioned you're willing to drive 3-4 hours.

On the left hand side at the link above, you can see there is a list of 'Forums', and perhaps someone in the saxophone forum will be able to lead you to a repair shop that is familiar with Selmer padless saxophones, if you post a message there. Sometimes, word of mouth referrals from people who are also owners of this brand of saxophone or just music lovers, is a good tool to locate repair shops.

I wish you much good luck and hope you're able to find a repair person for your saxophone!
