If you're looking for engraving, Welcome To Artistic Engraving!! Specializing in Hand Engraving! does this job for cheaper than that musical repair shop.
Dale Proctor, a TM member, had his cornet engraved by them last year
Pics and details are here
and it looks great from the looks of the pictures, and ...
I am not attempting to pile on here. We all know that nothing is a sure sign of anything. Simplistic, stereotypical characterizations inevitably cause more harm than good, and can serve no constructive purpose. We must behave like adults, and that is a reasonable request, IMO.
It is very easy to let your fingers to the talking and hit Submit before, as Wilmer Wiseone puts it, putting brain in gear. And words, once posted, have the potential to offend, even if that is not the intent of the poster. Editing after the fact is too late. We are "here" to share with others our love of and experience and "obsesssion" with all things trumpet, and we stand a great deal more to gain if we don't push other's buttons or drive them away. Kindness and consideration are as vital to this forum as embouchure and breathing and practicing are to what we seek from playing the trumpet.
My comments have nothing to do with offending anyone and everything to do with common sense in protecting yourself. Religious language IS a sure sign of a scam. That doesn't follow that everyone using religious language is trying to defraud, but in almost every case of this type of fraud that I know of, the scammer used religion to create a false sense of security. It is a fact. As the poster implied: he was lulled into a false sense of security because they seemed religious. This is a ploy that needs to be publicized for the sake of protecting the innocent or naive.
If you need to direct your indignation at someone: try the repair shop that caused the problem in the first place.
You contradict yourself in those first 2 sentences.
The first sentence is absurd, the second sentence is common sense.
In the third sentence,
you pretend to know that a repair shop used a "ploy",
but you really know no such thing,
since they might actually be adherents of that religion
but extremely poor examples of that religion.
This is a trumpet forum, so we should keep the subject on trumpets, not on the alleged religions (or lack thereof) of people.
Whether a business is operated by people who are Christians, or from other religions, and/or no religion at all, you should get a quote for services in writing and research the reputation of the dealer.
It has little to do with religion, but more with adhering to common sense. Cover yourself - do your research - get the cost of repairs and restoration in writing - follow up.
Whatever Morris. Believe what you want. I'll say what is necessary to keep people from being defrauded. Ignore my posts if they bother you.
Hey guys, Let's get off the topic of religion and get back to trumpet. How about we come up with some ideas for where he can send his horn when he gets it back (hopefully)
This thread started as a warning about sending your horns away?
And ends in a discussion about religion?
Seems like this thread has too much fast air
I already said lets drop it Morris.
