    Louie,

    That story rocks! I'm glad everything fell in place for you on that deal.

    Yeah Lou, that was a sweet deal and a great story! Congrats!

    Langston, eh? He probably doesn't remember me, but I met him back in '93 and heard him give a recital. Wonderful player and classy guy. You're in good hands.

    Again, congrats on your horn! :thumbsup:

    Flumpet for sale on TPIN

    I just saw that someone was selling quite a few nice horns on the TPIN list. What caught my eye was the Flumpet. It is selling for almost half of what a new one costs. If any of you are interested in owning one of these creations you might want to check it out. Just a head's up.......

    I would not buy any used Monette trumpet without being able to send it to Dave first, for him to check over. Too many Monette horns have been messed up by people who don't know what they are doing. If the person selling this Flumpet would not agree to send to Dave first, I would not give him a dime.

    Thanks for the comments everybody! I really like this horn! As for the story...this is one instance where it was too good to be true, but it WAS true! It'll probably never happen again in my lifetime :-).

    Again, I feel kind of lame for not being a true client (I guess I am a mouthpiece client), but I just can't afford a new one, or really the wait! I will someday though...someday...a P1 C...yummy....and a b-flat...and a...well I'd better not get carried away yet! :shock:

    Hey Louie....I just checked out the other instruments in your arsenal. Blackburn Piccolo and Eflat? Sounds like you have a sweet collection already! You will never need another Eflat, ever. I know some high profile players who would be playing on one if they were not owned by a company and restricted to only that company's instruments. I have never played a Blackburn piccolo, but I am sure it is fine instrument.

    Yeah, I am already thinking waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down the road that Shira will need a sibling to keep her company and it will be a Bflat. I don't know how many years apart they will be, but I will eventually have a Bflat made as well. There is no doubt in my mind.

    Anyway, you have a great set-up already Lou. Congrats and good luck with everything. You will have a P1C eventually....you'll see.
