    Tom, how much does it run to do that?

    Cannonball has some black nickel, shiny and matte that look nice. I think that would be a better option than lacquer. Imagine how terrible it will look if it takes a bump or a ding.

    Tom, I would prefer black or Navy blue, but red is still better than pink, green, orange.... ugh!

    It didn't cost me any extra. Charlie Melk's restoration in lacquer is currently $825.

    There are some colors Charlie won't do because they end up looking like crap and he doesn't want to spray the lacquer too thick. That red is a little pinkish (the color is accurate in the picture) but it looks good.

    I like this post. Words of wisdom.

    ...I guess what intrigues me the most about this, is paying $2300, only to have people think you paid $99.00

    I watched a very attractive young lady play a coloured trumpet once - well, I think the trumpet was coloured, hmmm, I think it was a trumpet. :oops:

    Hm, maybe I should play it for Sunday's concert of circus music :-)
