Excellent find. Does anyone else find Miles' articulations not what we've come to expect?

Do away with Electoral College, and we'll have a true democracy, which is defined by two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.
Excellent analogy J.
No it's not. It presupposes that the third party is a lamb. What if they're all wolves or all sheep? Works in other counties and is a heck of a lot more democratic. I'm tired of the premise of "one man, one vote" being a farce.
RE: The One
Well, this takes the cake. I got a new Getzen Classic, lacquered not silver, and it can do just about anything. I've always been curious about the lacquer vs. silver. Now, some say that it makes no difference what the finish is, they both sound the same. So maybe it's just the horn or there is really a difference in sound because of the finishes, but this horn has a great sound.
All Classics/Severinsens I've played have been good horns and pretty versatile, but I've always felt there is a dividing line below which a silver Severinsen just can't go. That's putting into a purely classical realm. But not with this particular horn. It plays the full spectrum.
It's become my go-to horn. I got the Yamaha Shew for its agility and because it's the lightest horn I've ever had and I'm not the strongest guy on the block, (strokes) but I've never been content with the Shew's sound. But the Getzen is light enough and the sound is more substantial.
So, I guess this is THE one.
