Hi,
I'm wondering if a crack on a cocobolo EH bell is extremely significant. It's fairly long, from the tenon, down about 2 inches. It's hard to tell, but it might go down into the bore nearest the tenon, about a few millimetres. The instrument sounds good upon initial testing. What does that do to the value of a horn? How easy (i.e., cost) is it to repair and is it susceptible to catastrophic failure?
