    It does sound like a lot, but it doesn't always have to be in a chair behind a music stand in your music cave. Do you drive a lot? Take a mouthpiece with you in the vehicle and buzz at red lights...

    Bye-bye buzz

    I've been getting a really annoying buzz on my Dolce. Wasn't able to figure out where it was coming from; everything was tightened up. This morning I completely removed the lyre holder screw (which...

    I've been wanting a "two-headed horn" since 1960, when my father and I bought the Conn 86I. The old man who sold it to us also had a gold-plated Conn double-bell naked-lady double-bell. I played a...

    So, what with the reduced activity over the past year, I haven't been spending my personal "mad money" as fast as I used to, and it has been accumulating to the tune of well over $1k. I did some...
