    Several months ago, one of our Norwegian friends launched an SOS on this site : he couldn't play his Selmer TT, because one of the top cap was broken. He had tried to get a set of them through usual commercial ways, but he was asked 300 euro (quite 400 dollars) for those three caps, and he never received them !
    Living in France, I could get directly the stuff from Selmer factory, after a lot of weeks, because of technical issues and of the traditionnal french strikes...
    But at last, I got the caps, send'em to Norway before Xmas, and our friend can play his favorite horn again : that's the magic of TM, and why we are so proud of being members of this great family.
    Beautiful Christmas story, isn't it ?

    Thanks for sharing, both with him and with us; and yes, it is a good Christmas story (or any time of year)...

    JA

    :-)I like it.

    A la tienne, Dupac (just opened a bottle of Merlot for my "evening" treat after finishing a 12 hrs night shift).

    I like it even more:-) The TT playes and looks like a dream now, thanks Dupac! This "happening" will surely become one of my most cherished TM memories:-)

    Thanks for sharing. It adds to the spirit of the season. It also is gratifying to all of us trumpet players that another fine instrument is back in fine playing form.
