    B15M,

    It sounds like you're doing what's correct for you! Remember that it's about the sound you've invested time and money to create. Therefore, don't give in to anything artificial if it doesn't have that ring to it. That's what I like about the Prana: the enhanced sense of the ring in the sound that has always been there but the operative word is "enhanced". It sounds like you've been satisfied with what you're doing.

    The only, and I mean only reason to doubt what you've been doing is if you're not getting that clear-as-a-bell ring.

    Yes, and different horn feel different ways when ringing. I actually start hearing a hum in my ears when I play the center of my Strad.

    YES, never do anything artificial. Its got to be a natural, air-hitting lips-hitting-piece-hitting-horn, going through the speaker.

    Cant wait to get home tonight! :D

    I thought it was a monkey too! I never studied it because I didn't like to look directly at it (I don't like monkeys). Now it's much less distrubing! Just a little dog...

    Yee HAW!
    That can be classified as a severe threat. Notify Homeland Security at once. Call out the rent-a-cops. Install a 9' perimeter fence with razor wire on top. Get cameras, flood lights, attack dogs. HELP!!!!!!!!!

    That is so freaky....

    All this time I also thought it was "something" standing with its hands behind its head....

    We need a psyche major to tell us what this means...

    I never thought it was a monkey though.... that one is strange... did you guys have a bad zoo experience as a child??? :D :lol: :D

    Van,

    You get a prize for the best avatar for the week.... sounds like you had several of us all mixed up.

    Yeah, I made the mistake of walking past the monkey cage.

    "Mom, what's that monkey doing over there?".......

    "MICHAEL!!! Let's go and see the fish exhibit."

    :oops:

    Those monkeys.... they do all those things in public that most of us would do if it wasn't for Ms. Manners :lol:

    Still, there is some of that in a few out there.... like sitting at a stop light and the guy next to you has his finger up his nose..... "hello... ???? Your windows are not that dark!!!"
