We usually are not ones to blow our own horns (unless we are literally blowing our own horns). And this time is no different. We’ll let Sam Shackleton do that for us. :-)
Dear Chris or Ron,
I don’t know how much fan mail you receive but I wanted to drop you a note. I recently had my valves re-calibrated and had the edge bracing put on my bass. I had the opportunity to really see how my horn responded to the change. Following a performance of Tchaik V this evening as well as Brahms’ Tragic Overture I could not be more pleased with the horn’s response! I feel more confident in my sound and dynamic control on the horn. Would you kindly pass along my “Thank you’s” to whomever did the work? I have not been this excited following a concert in well . . . way too long.
