    Morrie Zahner from Bettersounds Australia is a complete genius. A nitwit kicked my Schilke off its stand. Horn arived home today. It is immaculate. If you have a good horn that needs work done in Australia, he is the man.(Just for the record i have no vested interest) Credit where credit is due I say.

    It's stories like that that make me really think twice before buying a stand...

    Hi ozboy,
    God news on the Schilke, and a good reference. I suppose that was sent to Sydney?

    BTW:
    Should I dare ask "How Far Did you Kicked the Nitwit?"

    Merry Xmas and cheers to the family

    He said he'd pay but took off without leaving any details. I live in a small town and it didn't take long to find his address. I am sending him the bill. If he doesn't pay, his reputation may cop a bit of collateral damage.
    Morrie is in Logan just sth of brisbane. he has a web site with some before and after shots. Thanks for the wishes Peter. We haven't had a trampoline accident in weeks so all is good.

    It's not so much the use of a stand, but more the prevention of nitwits getting close to the instruments. If I have my instruments on a stand, they are nowhere near the public, and I never leave them on the stands during a break unless I stay with them.

    I've been using trumpet stands for over 30 years and have never had such an accident (knock wood), but as a repairman I have had to repair many such accidents.
