Watch out for fava beans, TJ!
Is the pure agave stuff the blue color? I've seen some documentary on the production of it......Buck
Bach Artist LTD-1
Yamaha YTR-732( now gone)
Selman C, rose brass( ongoing experiment)
72 Olds Custom Crafted
Selman Flugle( I know, it's Chinese)( Any body got a Getzen valve block I can put in this thing?)
Conn 17A Cornet
Bugles across America
And Chianti .... I don't think I've had even a glass of the stuff since seeing that movie (that shall remain nameless).
Nice Agave tequila often comes in 3 grades ........ Distilled, Reposado (aged), and Anejo (more aged). You can see the difference in color (it's never blue). The older ones are generally smoother, but not always. Popular brands that you can find at restaurants here are: Don Julio, Don Eduardo (my fav), Patron, Casadores, etc .....

Shed update ....
It's rocking .... I'm getting in at least an hour more practice time in there every day and nobody in the neighborhood has a clue. My volume on the trumpet is going up and it's sounding fuller. Kind of liberating. It's also much easier to hear in there .... intonation is easier with the bright sounding space, as opposed to my old dull sounding practice room.
I am noticing some things that need adjusting, before I start recording. The fridge for example, is so LOUD that my KORG tuner picks it up and displays it as a D (sometimes Bb). My computer also is loud enough to get a KORG reading ....
That is pushing me towards the TASCAM recording system (instead of a comp based system).
And I noticed that some furniture isn't getting inside the Shed (with it's new hardwood floor). The worst offender is my Manhasset music stand, the metal feet of which are so jagged and sharp, you could use them for a gouging tool. What's up with that??? I had to buy another music stand (a ProLine), with rubber pods on the feet, for use in the shed.
And Gmonady, the wet bar couldn't fit so I created one on the top of the ventilation unit. So far it's only stocked with water, coffee (espresso maker) and Tequila. Beer's in the loud fridge.

Rubber tips are available for most stands, new or replacement, at my local Lowe's hardware. Fitted the same to portable student stands I'm using when tutoring. Mighta saved you some pennies.
Too, sounds like you're nearing reno to your shed viz an addition for break time.
I like the key of D as well as anyone .............. but the quality of the sound coming from the fridge .... highly mechanical kind of electrical motor sound. Think high pitched whiny ratchet tool. I'm either going to have to a.) Retrofit it with a muffler system, or b.) UNPLUG IT.
