    This is why I own a pair of Flip Oakes Wild Thing trumpets. They come standard with all the notes..........

    I hate to encourage him, but this very random comment elicited audible mirth in the form of an unexpected snort-laugh at an undisclosed location in Ft. Worth, TX. Kinda felt like one of those rare occasions when I laugh at one of my dad's jokes. Don't think I've quite recovered from New Year's.......

    Oh, I say, Belvedere! Bring me a mint juleps!

    $75 for a note is pretty cheap, but we have to consider the raw material and how abused gmonady's have been. We'll have to spend a whole bunch of time working on them to get them in playable condition. I would suggest fabricating our notes from scratch. Should take less time and produce better results. Cheaper, too.

    I've abused a few notes myself - usually by dropping the high ones and crushing the low ones.

    What's the ideal material for constructing new ones? Unobtainium?

    Snips and snails and puppy-dog tails + sugar and spice and everything nice.

    Plus junk food--can't forget that!

    Genuine notes are finely wrought - unobtainium notes are invariably forged

    (sorry - metallurgist's in-joke ;-))
