I am really sorry. I know I promised you a video and I still have not posted it. It is just that I have not fixed internet at my home and my camera doesn`t work, remember?

I promise, that, as soon as I can post the video, I will post it.

Now, I want to change my clarinet too. Are yamaha clarinets good?

How much are they?

Could you please find out that info. It is just that here in Mexico everything is much more expensive than in the USA, and I am going to there this summer vacation.

Thanks in Advance,

are crap.

Without the video I refuse to tiptoe around the mulberry bushes, if you know what I mean.

John Bruce Yeh plays on Yamaha and somehow makes them sound halfway decent. If he played on Buffets he'd be principal. Another career falls victim to shoddy workmanship.
