    British Bandsman

    I was just looking at the international subscription prices for the British Bandman and am not sure why it needs to be 115 GBP ($250 CDN) to get a subscription. Certainly with today's technology there must be an easier way to get a copy i.e. online subscriptions that allow you to log in and...

    Anybody have a used Rath L4 1/2 or L5 mouthpiece that they want to get rid of? It is hard to get a hold of them to try here in Canada (only distributor is in the boonies in Edmonton), so buying a used model is less risky. Thanks, Craig
