    Regionals 2008: Second Section Test Piece: Three Part Invention

    Anyone had a response yet on this?....I assume all the purchased sets are of the same (sub) standard?....or have the publishers resent decent sets? We are going to need to order soon....but grieves me that we are treated like this with no alternative but to complain.
