Ed, I knew about the Eclipse dealer in Seattle but have just not had the opportunity to get there. One of my friends in my band has just recently ordered a marcinkiewicz. He went down to Portland and play tested for a couple of hours. He should have his horn by the end of October. I asked him if he tried the Eclipse trumpets but he had his heart set on the Marcinkiewicz so he did not bother. I am sure he will love his new horn.
