    Cleaning out my parent's home this weekend and found a receipt from the Getzen Flugelhorn they bought me in 1983. $470 from Woodwind Brasswind. Wish Getzen's were still that inexpensive.

    I thought it was neat that the horn was purchased from WWBW also; I remember they used to send out a catalog that was just black and white text, no photos, with all their instruments listed.

    Yeah, The Strad I purchased in the late '70's was $635 new. Can't touch the same model used for three times that now:-(:oops:
