I am sure thgis issue will be ongoing. I am 39, a pro player and have lived through the debates such as luaquer(my spelling can be testy) or not, heavy weight vs. skeletonized MPS. I do find a difference on the heavyweight, probably not enough of one to warrant the cost. I agree with Jay that prices have gotten a little out of hand, but that is supply and demand. To give you an example, I bought my first Alexander from a friend who got it from Chester Roberts. I bought it for the princely sum of $600.00 with a case in 1976. As long as there are brass players we will always debate the minutae. At my age, I am just thankful that I can play and still enjoy it. Thanks for the feedback. Cheers!!!
