After many years of frustration with my "Martin Committee" trumpet i have finally saved up my pennies and bought a nice shiney top of the range Jupiter trumpet. I must say it is a beaut, and it also has the advantage of playing quite well as well. Subsequently, my committee is now looking sad and unemployed. Last night when i was watching the title sequence of the Waltons in my conservatory, i had a brilliant idea; instead of investing in a new lampshade, i should turn my Martin Committee into a lampshade!!! It would serve two functions;as a light, and punishment for all those years of making me split notes, and restricting my range. Anyway, to cut a long story short, i have all the design credentials of British Leyland, and need some ideas of how to turn it into fashionable lampshade. Yours always B.U.M.
