    Must be top secret, haven't found it on the Eclipse website! But the description leaves a lot of questions: Bore size? Integrated valves and mouthpiece? Bell type?.... :cool:

    Hmm, ebay might be a good idea to sell my Magic Mind Horn in order to get the money together for my MR Eclipse??? So, Toots, you're REALLY sure you don't want to buy it? Last chance! I'll put even your initials on it for free!!! :lol:

    Frank, I'm tempted but I don't think I could afford the shipping costs.... the price DOES include the wearer, does it not?

    Haha! :lol: No, sorry to say, it doesn't include the wearer. :-(
    BUT: It includes the setting up by a master technician (...), who will fix the thing with a nice hammer drill on your head. Don't worry, it doesn't hurt... hmm maybe a little, but only once. :evil:
    The tricky thing is to find the right brain areas, provided that...

    And the shipping is not that expensive... :D

    Now that made me laugh Trevor! Trust those Geordies!

    On another note get a hose pipe, sellotape a plastic funnel to the end (sort use for cooking) put your mouthpiece on the other end and....

    hey presto - a trumpet! You can get whizzy effects too - play it while spinning the funnel around - children always love this!

    Graham,

    Didn't you go to university up there? That explains lots and lots.

    I've always wondered why your students have that 'dizzy' look..now I know!!

    Regards,

    Trevor

    Hi Trevor,

    Yes I went to university in the north east. I'm not sure whether it's the students or me who has the dizzy look though!

    I wonder if I got a large bore hose pipe it would sound better and be more open and have better response? I have seen some larger funnels at the supermarket too so I might save up for one. Anyone out there upgraded from a small bore hose pipe with small funnel to large bore with large funnel I would like to hear how you think it plays in comparison as it will help me make my decision.

    They come in different finishes too and I am unsure which one I should get - I like a big fat full sound - anyone know whether the green or yellow hose pipe would suit me best?

    Graham.
