    Sold/Expired Instrument seller suggestions?

    I am considering getting my own instrument (Eb Bass). I couldn’t seem to find any general posts on sellers, prices or deals. If anyone has any personal suggestions/recommendations or if there is a link you can point me to I would really appreciate it. Thanks, Matt

    How far do you go

    That is dedication! 5 mins for me, so I cant complain. We moved to a new band room recently which is even closer for me, which is pretty good.

    Yeah, I dont think you will get many arguments there. As a conductor, he comes up with great interpretations of pieces.

    Should Beckham loose armband?

    Watching the Euro 2004 matches, he has played too casually which came across to me like he didnt really care. He has become too much of a defensive player and never looked like he was going to set up the strikers as he did in days of old :? . On his perfomance at Euro 2004 i wouldn't have him...
