    What?! Are there no forum members in/near Wilmington, North Carolina? I have yet to get a single reply to this query. I will try to make things work one way or the other. I just thought that the banding brotherhood/sisterhood would be a good place to start.

    Sara, I just found this FB group that is focused on engraving:

    Check out the photos section. There is some very unusual stuff there!

    Update on the engraving project - I did find someone to engrave the horn and to play test the horn for me. But then 7 days ago, I tripped an broke my elbow. So I have had to shelve this idea indefinitely. I should be able to get back to playing within a few weeks, but I am not sure about handling a bigger and heavier horn. I need to run the whole thing by the specialist before I say anything for sure. I am luck that it is my left arm, so working valves is no problem. Holding the horn could be challenging for a few though. So I am holding off on making new purchases until I know how I come out on the other side.

    Hey Sara, if you’d like to test and see how handling the horn works out for you, drop me a DM. I’d be more than happy to ship my recently-acquired Monzani to you to try out. (I’ve got plenty of horns to keep me busy for now.)

    Thank you, Larry, for the offer. I may take you up on that once I have had a chance to see how I am doing with rehab and therapy.

    I will confess to being a little jealous of seeing how easily you have been able to acquire horns all along the price spectrum. Hope your horn journey has been as fun for you as it has sounded second hand.

    I admit that part of the reason for selling the E3 is that, after considering the financial investment coupled with the play-ability of the JP274, I really couldn't justify keeping it. I may dip my toe in to the pro market again if I ever get a chance to test several of them... (I like the idea of supporting S.E.Shires for sure)

    I actually went back and forth on selling the Adams until it became obvious that it would be a blessing to the recipient.
