I have a Benge Limited Edition(Serial:825747) that I got off of ebay. It's in great condition except I lost the first valve's bottom cap and Benge doesn't make parts any more. I tried calling every company I can think of. I called metal workers. I can't find the part. Any suggestions? (Sorry if this is in the wrong category, I'm still new)

Sorry if this sounds a bit redundent but have you tried Osmun or any random repair techs around? They may have one scrounging around. If not im afraid you're out of luck.

In what way do the Benge Limited Edition bottom cap differ from the standard, gold plating? We have the stock Benge bottom caps in lacquered brass and silver plate. If need be we'd be happy to gold plate one of these for you, just let us know.

Send your request to sales@osmun.com or phone Tim Cote at 978-823-0580.

Okay, the Benge LE400 is an intermediate silver plated Bb trumpet with gold plated trim, NOT built on traditional Benge valve set. So my suggestion is the Benge 90B/King 601 bottom cap (identical part number) or a complete matched set of 3 bottom caps be stripped/prepped and gold plated. Priced at $9.95 each in brass lacquer, plus labor to prep and gold at market rate. Just let us know.

Upon further investigation I found the part number for a gold plated bottom cap for an Eastlake, OH King 604 silver plated cornet (or Benge 90B), available for $52.95 each. Zero quantities on hand, but it can be ordered from Conn-Selmer, it might take a while. Just let us know.
