We Fixed U2’s Grammy Award!

Grammy Repair Grammy Repair

 

At Alpha Gifts and Awards we couldn’t believe it when we were approached by U2’s management team to repair their Grammy award! Stuart Allcock, owner of Alpha Gifts and Awards, initially thought the bizarre phone call was a joke and asked if it was Bono – but sadly it was a member of their management team who found the company simply by searching for ‘trophy craftsmen’ online.

We were asked to repair the rock band’s Grammy award, which was presented to the band in 1987 for their Joshua Tree album. As a lifelong U2 fan it was surreal for Stuart to receive the call to repair the award, which looked like it’d been broken for a while and had been split into three pieces – including a crack right through the gramophone horn.

It was in a bit of a sorry state and we took 2 weeks to repair the Grammy, making sure everything was absolutely perfect before we returned it to them. It was a nerve-wracking and complex process which required the parts to be glued together, welded and re-sprayed.

We were incredibly happy with the end result, though it was disappointing to discover the Grammy itself was only made of cheap cast iron that had been sprayed gold. Nonetheless, it was a fantastic once-in-a-lifetime experience and we are thrilled to be associated with such a prestigious award.

So if you’ve got a trophy or award that needs the rockstar treatment to restore it to its former glory, take a look at our trophy repair services!
