    I cannot recommend Austin Custom Brass enough. Trent and Josh are responsive and definitely have the ear of Miel Adams; any time I had an issue, they were quickly able to get it addressed.

    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.

    Buffet ended up telling me they were the light springs.

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

    I'll second this - I put a set of the medium springs in my Besson, and things are immediately clearer than the light springs it was shipped with.

    I would lean heavily toward playing the audition. If you are offered a position and can’t take it or don’t feel it’s the right fit, you can decline. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
