If I could find the link to "Introductions and greetings, then I would indeed use it, but I can't, - so there. I read a message from Brett Getzen in which he stated that the Getzen Power Bore Custom Built was begun in the sixties. I'm sure he is right, but I was sure that I bought mine in the fifties. If you are around Brett could you confirm how I should date the origin of mine? This horn, incidentally is the best I have ever played or owned, and far outweighs the Bach Strad for range and flexibility. Howvere, these days with the chops getting on a bit, I tend to play trombone ( a Yam) or BBb tuba instead.
