Stephen Adcock at Valve and Reed is a star. Fabulous work expertly carried out. My Yamaha Chicago Bb Trumpet now plays better than ever thanks to the leadpipe tweaks Stephen did.

Amazing!! Didn't realize how bad my trumpets condition was until I received it back from Valve and Reed! Totally transformed the instrument and very competitive price too!. Highly Recommend!

Recently bought a Yamaha YFH-6310Z ‘Bobby Shew’ Flugel From Stephen. It arrived in record time and it was in better playing condition than you’d receive from the factory. Plus, it’s been brilliant tweaked by Stephen - which makes the feel and slotting on this Flugel simply amazing. Top work!!

Sent Stephen a Conn Elkhart 8H after a nasty drop, landed on the tuning slide and most of the bell section needed serious work. The repairs were done quickly and efficiently and the instrument looks as good as new! I also sent over a mouthpiece to get plated and it was done beautifully. Thanks to Stephen for his reasonably-priced expert handiwork!

Brilliant service. I sent my YFH631 to Stephen to get fully overhauled and have a trigger fitted. I would definitely recommend the workmanship of this man to anyone.

I bought a 14X,XXX Selmer Mark VI Alto Saxophone from Stephen at Valve & Reed this week. The horn is absolutely amazing and perfectly set up. The communication and service from start to finish was excellent and I highly recommend them for any serious player looking for top quality service and advice. Thanks everyone at Valve & Reed and look forward to using your service again in the future. Thanks again, Jim Corry

Stephen is simply a cut above other repairers in not only his workmanship but his ability to improve your instrument to your specification. His knowledge and attention to detail have improved my trumpets each time he has worked on them. Thanks so much!

Stephen provides great service and I can not praise his workmanship highly enough. My Kanstul trumpet plays and looks like a new instrument.

After dropping my instruments I needed someone who would have the skill and knowledge to put them right without altering their playing characteristics. Stephen did exactly that! Fantastic work and highly recommended!
