    Wow,

    I had the chance recently to play an Eclipse at a lesson with Alex.

    Holy cow! What a horn!

    The thing was built to withstand Nuclear Holocaust. The bracing was strong enough for me to use the horn to beat somebody with! (Not that I would) :D

    The detail of the horn and craftsmanship where superior to anything that I've ever had or played.

    The intonation, response, and free blowing nature of this horn make it a real treat to play.

    Leigh has got it spot on! Good show!

    Lara and Chuck I now envy you more then you know! :D

    Hey John,

    That nice King Silver Flair will look real nice in a frame on your wall!

    Your view of trumpets has just been Eclipsed!

    Thanks guys...

    Well, as you know Chuck it takes one Heck of a shadow to eclipse me so Leigh has really done something here.

    I was just blown away at this horn.

    Your right; if I can ever get the coin together me and Leigh will be dealing.

    For now I'll continue to work on my creative side if/when Leigh does another one of those contests.

    Great horn man really; I just can't shut up about them!

    Gary,

    Your killing me.... :D

    Trent,

    I'm envious!

    I just could not get over how that horn felt and played..

    I was like Tim Allen (Tim the Tool Man Taylor) I picked it up and it was so darn rugged that it felt like a power Trumpet!

    I was like Ugh Ugh Ugh..!

    Leigh has really got it spot on... If I could justify it with my wife I'd most certainly be ordering one Monday morning.

    Beautiful horns! :D

    What he said, except in a higher pitched, girlish giggle.

    I don't do the whole 'sinister' thing...it'd ruin my silverstar finish! :lol:

    Lara :-P ;-)

    So, what you're saying is that the timing of my phone call to Alex was just right? :dontknow:

    Another minute in your hands, and... do we really want to go there? "I don't think so, Tim!" :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I have a whole list of the "Best reasons to buy an Eclipse", which I'll be very happy to share. :cool:

    Cheers!
