You didn't happen to attend Western Iowa Tech's Band Instrument Repair class, did you? I was there about that same time (1975-1976) and we toured Getzen and Leblanc and Holton and the brand new (at that time) Martin plant. It was wonderful watching them work at the Getzen plant and then to see the Holton plant and watch them spinning the Farkas French Horn bells -- truly an eye-opening experience!
