Subject: Getzen Instruments


   Does anyone have any feelings (positive or negative) about the brass
instruments that are manufactured by Getzen?  I'm interested in buying a bass
trumpet and the only two models that I am aware of are made by Getzen and
Bach.  Please respond publicly or privately.  I do not wish to begin a brand
war, but I would like to read the opinions of those who own or use Getzen
instruments on a regular basis.

>  Now this year, I'll make a VHS dub of all the footage with a burned- in

I told him there was no way that I was willing to do a video again.  Too
much bookkeeping, mailing, copying....time on my part.
