    but "One is never enough"

    Anything playable works. If it blows than you can worship god.

    If it don't blow It belongs in the museum.
    OLDLOU are you into trombones?

    It looks like the problem is solved, but as a note I picked up a perfectly playable Bach CR300 cornet with case and two mouthpieces on Goodwill for $25 a few months ago. It has a few tiny dings and lots of missing lacquer, but there was no major damage and all the slides and valves worked great out-of-the-box.

    Thank you again A.N.A. Mendez.

    I will look on the goodwill site. More and more people are now wanting to play in the band in our small church. The lack of music instruments is getting higher. People In our church are starting to donate money and I'm watching some good horns on goodwill and eBay. The most I will ever spend on a horn is around $50. Thanks to all again.

    God Bless

    Man Oh Man, there are some GOOD people who post here. I am proud to share the forum with them.

    Best reason for collecting is when you get an op. to give some aspiring musician a leg up. Feels so good!
