    I always noticed how incredibly low the third slide on my bach makes everything. Where do I get it fixed??

    I wish I had this for middle E and E flat...though mine are quite OK compared to "normal" VB models...

    You guys are overloading me! Now I know why I have to practice two weeks with my Bach C in order hear the right pitches.

    I had a Blessing C that had pitch problems from fourth line D to high D. Now I know why.

    It used to be just a bicycle ride away, and so, yeah! He always has fun new stuff to try out, old restorations, and yes, free beer! He's also a true master, who can do anything a customer asks for -- he will shake his head, sometimes, but he'll do it. He had one of those "cheap, fast and good -- the customer may choose any two out of three" signs. I always opted for cheap and fast, because he'd do a good job anyway.
