For the last year, as I've been travelling across Canada, Band Supplies Glasgow has held my tenor (Conn 88HCL) and bass (Bach 50B2O) trombones, in order to sell them on my behalf. They have been unsucessful so far, but will be taking them to their stand at the 2006 ITF, if anybody out there is...
Ok, not sure if I'm actually allowed to advertise like this, becasue I am not affiliated with Band-supplies in anyway. I have however, left my most prized pocessions in the hands of the owner, to be sold on to any one interested for about &1000 (pounds) each.
For those of you not up to speed...
Gutted, I am absolutely gutted not even to be in the country when both the Open and the Nationals have new works commisioned for them, but thank God for the internet!
Just wondering how Eden was coming along, you luck, lucky people?
Actually, I'll give you my mobile number too:
0 7 9 1 9 2 2 2 3 7 5
P.s. I think I rather shot myself in the foot by only making i available to uk buyers, so if anyone oversees is interested, please call me.
EDIT by tMM: have spaced the mobile number so as it's not picked up by Spammers...
To be fair, I probably put too high a reserve on it, but even so, I was expecting mor einterest than I eventually got! So... the details are all the same (you shouls still be able to access the webpage, but without being able to bid):
Hi guys - just thought I'd let you know that I'm prepared to pay postage/insurabce costs if the BUY IT NOw price is met. The (new and improved) listing is here:
And I can also tell you that the reserve is only £800. Thanks...
I think everything's covered in my listing:
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Cheers
Well, as much as I will now make a point of going to the Open this year because I enjoy all three pieces; I am a little worried that in the long term that if this continues it will mean less original music will be commisioned for the Majors. I'm also a little peaved they're using THE SAME work...
Cheers for that - though i should perhaps have been less vague about my Avatar trouble. Thing is, I know how to upload one, just not how reduce any of my suitable pictures! Anyway, I've PMed a guy fom my band and he's on the case!
Just wondering how you go about rehearsing for a two-tiered contest such as the Norwegian Nationals, or indeed the Europeans.
Do you split the individulal reherasals, do one on Tuesdays and t'other on Fridays, or what? Just curious!
Try www.myatt.co.uk and a Weril Alto for about £400. Myatt are really good to deal with, and give you a week to try stuff out with a full refund if you're not happy. If you want pictures, do an image serch on google with "weril gg31" And go to http://www.steveferguson.net/ for a review.
