Bloke, indeed. I am glad he had you fix his horn so he can have the occasional break and recreation from all of his life responsibilities. You did the appropriate action in charging him your going rate; and I know you gave him his money's worth getting the horn back into playing condition. We all wish him the best.

Some one I admire a great deal, a former band director said recently, “have we been commanded to do good deeds, or commanded to compel others to do good deeds for us??”

That’s why I admire him a great deal.

1. Thanks for posting this.
2. I love those older Miraphone 186 tubas.
3. I still do not know why Miraphone stopped making those original mouthpipes. I hope that old mandrel still exists.

I try to do good things (when I think of it - as I'm not particularly good) for good people.
We need to encourage them, so they will continue to model for the rest of us.
