    Again, Dave fires a perfect salvo of tune.

    If you don't have nipples on the bottom caps, it won't happen.

    Somebody used to make a plastic cup that fit outside all three valve casings, but I haven't seen one of them in a long time.

    John speaks the truth.

    Please don't fall to the hype from Indian horn sellers, they are ALL junk. They do make stylish urinals, tho.

    I need an arranger!

    Not some mob fix-it man, but someone who can turn a classic pop tune into a chart for a 5- or 6-piece brass group.

    Will pay whatever is reasonable for a good chart.

    Contact me please via PM.

    We all need that 20% advantage, even after years of lessons, practice, and performance.
