Hey list!

My email found the following classified ad:

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Location: Milwaukee WI   Area Code: 414  Date Posted: 02/10/2002
BASS Saxophone $1200, Eb Tuba $500, F Key Trombone $750, Mellophone $150. Jim (414)481-8863

Don't know a thing about the sax, but if you run it down, let me and the list know what you discovered!

Larry Krantz's site lists George Opperman at:

George Opperman
1117 Clover Street
South Bend, IN 46615
(Handmade piccolos in grenadilla, rosewood, and silver bass flutes)

You might try telephoning to see if he's planning to bring
instruments to the next NFA conference (next summer in DC?), or if he
has anything he can ship on approval.
