    I'm pretty sure I have breathed in at least a couple ounces of valve oil in my lifetime. Good thing it's not lead based!

    I'm NOT switching, but I may be nabbing a silver flute for my studio (I play the flute) off Craigslist today. I've been watching ... and suddenly, a good looking one with open holes for $40. We'll see if it plays.

    I was to meet the flute seller in the parking lot of Guitar Center ... they never showed up so I went inside the store and came out with a pair of powered Mackie monitor speakers for my recording studio (that I've needed for a while now). So, no flute but better mixing in the studio.

    Hey, it's too bad that Guitar Center doesn't carry Monette trumpets, because you can always wait around for one of their (monthly) 15 percent off sales. :dontknow:
