    I was thinking the same thing as Barry (4th valve tubing too long). Try this:

    Play your middle F concert (G in treble) open. Then play it with 4. You should be able to make the pitch with 4 match...

    That is not all that unusual. For me I find 13 works a little better sometimes, depending on context. I think I've seen David Childs do the same thing. Whether it works for any player would be a...

    Wow - that is a tough gig! My brother in law was an ATC at O'Hare. He was one of the controllers who did not go out on strike when Reagan had just come into office. That was rough and he lost some...

    Remember the Lily Tomlin routines where she played the telephone operator, with lots of gags about Ma Bell? I bought the album way back when. The last track (as I recall) was about getting even with...

    Right back at'cha, Gary! This is something that I've seen reinforced tons of times in my latter career. But of course that is still anecdotal.

    But from my two examples, I came away with these...

    I was self-taught. I started in 1981-2 with BASIC on the Atari 800. I programmed it to help run Whaling Music Publishers. The 800 was based on the same chip as the Apple II. Then I moved up in around...

    The recent posts here remind me of the fact that in computer programming you often find people with music backgrounds. I suppose vice versa would apply.

    In CT, the wife of one of the band guys was...

    Good find, Rick! I wonder if they sell those for dust covers or for parade-debris duty. I leave my horn on the Hercules stand every day. But it's in the basement and we have spiders and other bugs...

    Actually, I don't always do that. But we did sound checks before the recital with my wife in the hall. She had heard Bastien Baumet the prior day in the same room. He had stood in the more...

    How about Eternal Father? It's a nice hymn that is found in various hymnals (with different names sometimes) and it is the official hymn of the Coast Guard and Navy. Ken Friedrich has a pretty good...

    You're above my head for any kind of authoritative answer! But I THOUGHT I recall hearing that I could pick either 10 years or 5 years.

    If you are comfortable answering... Are you thinking of a "comfort animal" type of need, or a physical therapy type of need? Either would be an interesting thing to pursue. Or maybe something else.

    As far as I know, you could only deduct an instrument (depreciated) if it has some kind of business use, and if you file a Schedule C for your business. So if you do gigs and file a Schedule C, then...

    What did you customize on the mouthpiece? Did you do it yourself or did you get Parker to do it at your request?

    John,

    I'm not sure that pad is also for storage, although it sure looks like it. But it is not where *I* would want to have a mouthpiece - that would close on top of the valve-slide cluster as far...
