Neumann u47 capsule reskin in L.A. or USA

Dear GS friends.

I've recently sold my u47 tube for this person in Los Angeles- I'm based in London.

During shipping, unfortunately, the diaphragm detached from the diaphragm holder, causing damage in the back of it, not being able to be used as Omnidirectional.

The best would be sending to Thiersch (he was the one who reskinned first) but sending all the way back to Germany, plus the timeframe to wait for the buyer to get it back is a bit too much.

Can anyone refer a great tech, ideally in Los Angeles/California, where the new buyer is located, to do the job?

Much appreciated.

With that capsule I would use Thirsch and no other - it's what the buyer actually paid for.
