    Are the bottom braces also in your initials?

    Bet you treat those babies with kid gloves! Very, very nice.

    Hi Alan

    In fact a copper Eclipse is due back from Germany very soon, it has been a brief tour of some top German players along with another 4 Eclipses to be reviewed by Sonic Music Magazine.

    Once its back i may well send it up to Malcolm and the guys at Stringers so the boys north of the border can have a blast on it!

    I should also get a medium heavy red up there when i can also as its a great edition to our range and has managed to turn a few heads down here!

    Great to hear from you and ill keep you posted of when new horns will arrive in Scotland

    All the best

    Leigh

    That copper horn looks so different from when I played it a few weeks back. I liked it then and it looks great now. I know, all I need to do is put the order in. Hopefully that will come soon, I am looking forward to becoming a full member of the Eclipse family!!

    See ya soon.

    I was just taking another (drooling) look at the copper one myself when a thought occurred (they do happen from time to time). I am curious as to how you managed to connect the copper leadpipe to the brass leadpipe bow while managing to maintain the continuous internal taper that your essential design feature (bell tuning bow) permits. It must be devilishly tricky to get that "just right". If you aren't "bound by corporate secrets" (or "National Secrets Act"), just how DO you do that?
