Quick story on Washington Music Center.  When my 1970 vintage R13
was stolen, I went to Chucks to pick out a replacement (after convincing
the insurance co. that Chuck's price would be as good as they could do
through their wholesaler.) I walked in with my then 10 year old son and
said that I wanted to by an R13.  Mr Leven materialized and sternly
lectured me that it was a crime to let a kid learn to play on an R13.  I
should get a Bundy.  'nuff said.

PS write down the serial number for every horn you have and preferably
have good, close up pics of the instruments and cases.
