Mouthpieces need to arrive clean inside and out with silver still intact for best results as that plating gold over raw brass the copper in the brass quickly leeches into the gold and compromises its durability.

Mouthpiece Restoration and Re silvering
Includes stripping off the old silver lightly buffing all surfaces with tremendous care given to the rims playing surface so much so that we only polish the rim itself by hand (not with a speed buffer) to preserve the original rim contour and feel as much as possible. Therefore indentations, pits and deep marks will be left and plated over top of on the rims playing surface to help insure the original feel is retained as much as possible. We are trumpet geeks as well so we know the deal!
Email us to quote restoration work at firstname.lastname@example.org and include photos of what you have. Having multiple mouthpieces restored at the same time greatly reduces the overall cost per item.
We use Theta-Plate in New Mexico for silver plating so our turn around time is longer on restorations. Usually around 3 weeks turn around. Ball park on restorations $45.00 Trumpet, Cornet, French Horn, Flugelhorn. $60.00 Trombone, Tuba.
