Tuba Exchange

I had an interesting thing happened today regarding my Tuba that I need some toss around time on. Hope you guys can help me out.

Today I contacted Vince Simonetti of the Tuba Exchange to find out about replacement parts and a little history about my Tuba. As it turns out, my horn is a F. E. Olds & Son Tuba circa 1966-1967. The Fullerton, CA plant where my horn was made has now been closed and the company still exists, but under new management.

Anyway, to make a long story shorter, Simonetti said that he was very interested in my horn and would give me a half price trade in on this ¾ size tuba.

What do you think?

Standing Order for Veggie-Meat

We are very seldom near the book store at a convenient shopping time, so it's not always easy for us to buy Worthington or La Loma products. Here's what I'm thinking: If you're at the book store, grab a couple extra cans of something for us, and we'll be happy to more than pay you back the next time we get together. Prime Steaks, Fri-Chik, Veja-Links, Chai Pow Yu or pretty much anything else. Thanks!

Chamber Music Sabbath Afternoon

Hello friends,

This looks like a good week for chamber music after potluck. Are you interested? Bring instruments and music, and lets see what happens!

For those who have Trout or Hummel Septet recordings, listen up! It really helps to know what the music sounds like.
