Broken Kelly MP Shank Stuck in Trb I’ve Never Seen
This Before

Trombone comes in with a plastic Kelly Mouthpiece broken off in the mouthpiece receiver. Customer should be glad it was a trombone with a straight shot up the slide…a trumpet, baritone, tuba with limited or no access from the other end would have been MUCH harder to remove, which also meant it would have cost A LOT more t0 fix.  Even with straight access on this trombone, I had to be EXTREMELY careful not to damage the tapered leadpipe in the receiver side of the outside slide.
