Brass Instrument Repair by Lionel Emde
Lionel Emde apprenticed to the trade under Larry Souza in 1975 at "Musicman", a music store in San Mateo. After 10 1/2 years, the shop closed and following a hiatus, Mr. Emde resumed repairing.

Currently at Hornucopia for the last 11 years, Lionel enjoys the work of reshaping metal, in ever (hopefully) better ways.
He can be contacted at his home studio (650-738-9120), or at Hornucopia (650-593-3050) on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
