    I know what you are talking about. Very cool horn.


    Also, I dont sleep with my horns. But I do take care of them, and I treat them all equally. I have slept with a gig bag as my pillow. Dont worry, there was no horn in it.

    I agree, I can play on any horn, but I can't love just any woman. Luckily, my Mrs. is rather understanding of my obsession. Heck, we first met while I was on a gig. And she likes to hear me play. :)

    Not saying anybody else shouldn't have whatever intimate relationship they want with their horn - although I would suggest that if you perform regularly, having to stare at it for five minutes before just putting it to your lips could be a hindrance at times, at the very least - but to me it's a tool. A tool to make music, not an end unto itself. Although I will admit to being a bit fond of my Conn for sentimental reasons.

    Sure, as soon as I have given it a good trial period I will post it. I will try to remember to PM you. It is unique.
    Thanks for the info. I'll try to post pics with it.

    Trust develops when the instrument in question begins doing what you want it to do. It generally takes a while for them to get with the program, they are metal, and not very sentient, after all.

    Talking nicely to them can help. Threatening to fling them against the wall usually doesn't. :lol:

    Personally, I'd trust them a lot more if they had more higher notes in them. :dontknow:

    I am so glad to hear John Olgibee sold one of those horns. He has some really interesting stuff for sale, and his anti-tarnish bags are awesome. Plus, he is a gentleman and pleasure to deal with.
    Please do give us pix and a review.

    The problem is they ARE in there! You just need to figure out how to get them OUT!

    When I sell or trade a horn I always tout it as hardly used, still full of high notes.

    Can't say I've ever slept in a tuba case, but then again, I'd be a bit cramped. I did lock my nephew in an instrument locker once...does that count?
    I'll admit to being a bit eccentric about my horns, but not to the point of being really weird. I've never slept with them, but I fear I did make my gentleman friend a bit jealous when I first laid eyes and hands on my Conn. He returned the favor when I gave him the guitar in trade. Fortunately for me, he gets it and wasn't offended. The Thumpet sounds very interesting. I'll be interested to see pics and hear the review.

    That's the way I think, it's a great tool. I like it in the same way I like using other tools. I get a sense of enjoyment and familiarity from using it and some shared history but no more than that.

    Personally I think you're nuts. But hey, I'll take one nut like you over 10 personalityless accountants anyday!
