    Well folks did it. I bought my P5-4. I love it. It s everything I hoped for. I bought it from Ceth Barnett at Tulsa band. He gave me a great price, and was a big help as always.



    Now for a little rant.......Why does schilke not send a case with that particular horn? and why didn't I get the 'A' Pipe? You would think that with the ammount of money I spent buying this horn that they would at least give me a case for it!!!.....I have to run now....have to find a case for this horn.

    They could always charge you an extra $200. and give a case.

    Don't feel bad though, as good as their horns are, their cases aren't.

    Whew....that's good news J. I was beginning to worry about you. ;-)

    Congrats on your new baby. I know you must be dying to get your hands on all kinds of piccolo music now, huh? Enjoy!

    You have me thinking the same thing B15. I have a Yamaha custom which has two lead pipes, but I could swear the Schilkes had one leadpipe. Hmmmmmmm.......

    Have you tried to pull it out very far J?
