Just thought I'd introduce myself. This seems like a friendly place, so I thought I'd finally join in! My name's Bill, and I'm a father of four (hence the user ID!) and lapsed trumpet player from England. I've recently started playing again, on my old Â£70 Lafleur with a missing 2nd valve cap (I know, I can feel your envy ). Don't know if I'll be able to contibute much given my lack of experience and woeful playing, but we'll see. Bill.
