    I guess I'm not sure what you are referring to - what's the "holy grail?"

    I believe Mendez is talking about the Olds Super Recording on Ebay?

    F.E. Olds Recording Model trumpet Fullerton, Calif. Bent Bell RARE w/bach Mp

    This is the best example of one of these, very early, no engraving on bell, only on tone ring. dual lead pipe, the Clifford Brown Bach MP is a bonus.

    Awe Patrick, that hurts!

    Mendez, I did end up getting that SR. Kinda weird that the seller listed as Olds Recording - Fullerton. Even before he posted the serial number, that did not jive.

    I AM SO EXCITED!

    Good eye. I wondered for awhile who saw it, till the last hour. I think that bell will be OK, will you send it to Charlie?

    I thought the Martin Committee #3 was the Holy Grail.

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

    Yup, won't be here for long. Heading for the Charlie Melk treatment.

    Mendez, is that one of your horns?
