    As I've mentioned in some previous posts, I'll be trying out some horns later this week (or possibly next week)at my local brass tech's shop soon--A Schilke B-5, a Burbank (I don't know what model the Burbank is right now, but it's a copy of an LA Benge, and it's made by Kanstul, so it's tempting), and I'm going to look into the possibility of picking up a C trumpet. My tech stocks and sells some new horns, in addition to doing repairs. On top of this, I recently saw a '53 Olds Recording online, and THAT'S making my mouth water!! My question to my fellow TM members is, is this typical of an N+1 virus infection, or is my case more serious than most??:shhh:

    No, typically the mouth gets dry when the actual final impulse purchase is made...

    Yeah, but it flares up when you least expect it.

    Only one horn at a time...don't shoot the wad all at once. Stretch it out so you have a new horn to play every 6 months or so...:lol:

    Great replies, guys!! I'm still laughing at Gmonady's and Bochawa's responses, and Dale--I'll try to space 'em out, but I'm in the full throes of the infection now, so that might be tough!! By the way, Gmonady--I saw a picture of you on the Kanstul site recently--you were playing your 1526 flugel....

    My N+1 seems to flare up coincidently with my investment dividends arriving.

    Regards, Stuart.

    But, Stu; these 30 horns of yours are all investments as such, are they not?

    At least, that´s what you´ve told me, and as I´ve understood, your family as well . . .

    Hi Sofus,

    My horns hopefully will be of some benefit to our children when I leave this life, meanwhile I enjoy playing the vintage horns, comparing the various manufactures and models and I have some more since our last conversation.

    Regards, Stuart.

    It's all relative ... use to have a member here who literally had over 90 Olds Ambassadors ... and more vintage Conns then I could remember. Then the members who build closets to store all their instruments... I think you are safe.
