The reason is that I'm still waiting for pension funds from my ex-employer to be deposited into my bank account. Until that happens, the Schilke B5 that's in my local brass tech's shop will have to cool its proverbial heels, while I cool my actual ones. It's tough to wait, but I understand wire transfers take time....I'm still impatient, though, especially since my tech said he had a nice Benge I could have tried too, but he sold it yesterday!! Good thing I have my Strad--It's a wonderful horn, but I would like to add to my "arsenal"!!
