    Bruce-
    Enjoy talking with you about the Eclipse trumpets- you are very informative and helpful. It would help me (and I'm assumng others) to get the breakdown on the cost of the Eclipse. 3,200 Euro equals $2,680 US based on the exchange rate last week. Please expand on the other costs involved in order to get the horn to the United States. THANKS !!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm not Bruce , but I think that exchange rate is a little off. 3,200 Euro is about $3,700 with the exchange rate from last week(can the dollar get some help?). Someone correct me if I'm wrong on that but I use Euro's every day.

    By the way Bruce, I think that GR decision was made after today............WHAT A MOUTHPIECE!!!!!!!!!

    I called the International office of Bank One in the United States last week and that is the rate they quoted me- 3200 Euro = $2,680 US

    Taken from a currency exchange counter:


    Results
    Euro United States
    3600 ECU(s) = 4244.1844 Dollar(s)

    Quick, everyone call Bank One and start buying Euros!

    Marathoner...they got their calculator upside down!

    Hey, Marathoner!

    The Euro fluctuates quite a bit, eh?

    It's always best to call, or e-mail, for a quote. Doing the conversion can be scary business! Especially if their calculator is upside-down...

    Thankfully, regardless of the value of our dollar, the price will remain the same. Leigh is not out to scare anyone away. The Eclipse trumpets are truly in a class all by themselves, and they a great value!

    Thanks for helping to clarify that, Skip, and Ed!

    Best always,
    Bruce

    That's great news, Mike! We need for the Eclipse trumpet count, and the GR mouthpiece count to be equal, in Bamberg!

    You have to keep an eye on Gary, he gives his mouthpieces away, all of the time!

    Enjoy it, Savannah Mannah! Wow... new username?

    Thanks, Mike!

    The Euro is rediculously unstable due to the varied economies in the "Eurozone".

    It's probably better to compare the Dollar price to Stirling, since Eclipses are made in the UK not Europe. Also the Pound is more stable against the Dollar.

    Very valid point, Clarino. Here's today's numbers from the currency calculator site that I use:


    Results
    United Kingdom United States
    2000 Pound(s) = 3390.2271 Dollar(s)

    Not cheap...but less than $4,000! (as if THAT would make my wife breath a sigh of relief!!!)

    (edit: Gee, does this mean we can pick the currency of our choice? )
