President Mike Pence? Dems should be 'careful what they wish for', experts say:

As much fun as it would be to see Trump impeached and tossed out on the street, I find the prospect of President Pence to be far more frightening.

In retrospect, I think this was very poorly handled by the principal. If there was a problem it should have been made clear to me what it was, right? Is it normal for a principal to let someone make this sort of hysterical complaint without explaining what the hysteria is all about?

Career teacher here. The principal handled the situation incompetently. I'm not sure that headmaster Dumbledore would approve of your church lady photo. ;-)

I'll note that "NewsCorpse" is an allusion to Rupert Murdoch's "News Corporation" AKA "News Corp"

Roger Ailes is a news corpse:

I have an identical looking cat. The intonation on mine is a bit wonky though.

I'm not in the market, but she's a beauty. The horn is really nice too! :)

C.H.-led ensemble. Hopefully he will also play.

It won't cost you anything to find out!

Very cool and right up my alley. Equally cool that it's available in FLAC. https://xiph.org/flac/

Any chance you might perform this kind of stuff locally? Perhaps at Downtown Music Gallery? (The weekly free concert series is terrific, by the way.) http://www.downtownmusicgallery.com/

Give creative music like this a chance!

I've lived and/or worked in Brooklyn for most of my adult life and it has been sad to see it so devastated by gentrification. Where did all of the working class people go?

Buyer evaporated. Large shank 5GS back on the market.

I'll be curious to hear how the 48A works with your 671. It was dreadful with my JP Rath alto with the worst intonation of any mouthpiece that I tried.

I've had a number of Yamaha horns over the years (YSL354, YEP201/211/321) and have been happy with all of them. They all sounded great and fit/finish were top-notch. The YSL871/used 671 will be top contenders if/when I'm ready to move on from the JP Rath.
15  Classified Advertisements / Classified Advertisements / WTB: Eb alto horn on: May 04, 2017, 05:31AM
Looking for a bell front, front valve action Eb alto horn in very good condition. It must accept a proper alto horn mouthpiece (e.g., Denis Wick) and should be designed to play in Eb, not an Eb/F model with a main tuning slide extension. A hard shell case without any funky odors is a plus. Any non-eBay or Dillon Music (I've already checked out their horns in person - the Olds Eb is actually an F) leads would also be appreciated.

A Conn or King would be great. I'm not sure if Olds made an Eb equivalent, but I really liked the Ambassador in F that I played.

Can be part of a deal if you're in the NYC metro area:

Silver-plated in new condition (I buzzed on it for a few seconds) with original packaging (box will be collapsed to fit into Priority Mail box). Never used with an instrument, so no insertion marks. I decided to abandon my venture into the world of alto horn.

$45 shipped Priority Mail. Payment via Paypal (no fee at my end).
