    I bought a copy of Beautiful Colorado, which arrived today.

    I have to say, the print quality of it is just atrocious - one example of that is attached.

    I cannot understand how modern...

    Buffet ended up telling me they were the light springs.

    I put in the new medium springs 2 weeks ago, and theyíre heavier than the ones the horn shipped with, so Iíd say they were definitely the...

    I can speak anecdotally to this, as I bought a gold lacquered prestige initially from Thomann in Germany because there weren't any available in the USA according to the distributor. I got it and it...

    I would lean heavily toward playing the audition. If you are offered a position and canít take it or donít feel itís the right fit, you can decline. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    Hi Micah,

    It sounds like the specs on your piece place it essentially as the standard M top with a backbore - assuming that is the case, the GVL to me seems a bit warmer/darker in characteristics....

    I was speculating with a friend about this - I have to assume that besson has the R&D available to change this, and I'm sure they've researched some things.

    I find it interesting how the floating leadpipe makes such a big difference.

    I didn't like the prestige until I played one with the floating leadpipe.

    That said, 5th and 6th partial...
