bocal repair

Anyone know of a good bocal repairman? I had an accident with my Fox CTC bocal; it's dented opposite the pin hole. I don't know if it's repairable or worth the cost of the repair...

You could send it back to the Fox factory... or check with Marvin Krantz near St. Louis:

In New York there's Landy bassoon repair:

Or Keith Bowen on the West coast:

These three are all well respected bassoon repair technicians. I know for sure that Marvin does bocal repair (I've seen his work and it's amazing). Not totally sure about the other two.
Thanks. I bought my bassoon through Keith Bowen...But I will check into those!
Holden MacAleer operates a bassoon repair business in Baltimore. He does very good work too. I dented and cracked a pre WWI heckel bocal and he made it good as new.
