Ahh. Didn't look too carefully and in the pic it sort of looks like it's all shiny metal. I just sold a Bb Leblanc contrabass clarinet, aka "paperclip" that was in really good shape. Oddly enough, our local high school (300 kids total enrollment) had two of them that hadn't seen use in decades. They traded them in to purchase items more useful to them.

Lenhart Toilet Tuba

Today"s installment.


Known as the Toilet tuba for the position in which it's played. Made in Philadelphia in 1876 to commemorate the nations Centennial. They made a set of horns in various sizes. They are extremely rare.

This is the 'baritone' version.

How about an F trumpet?


Or a "peck" horn?


Old piccolo with real ivory headstock.


That's just a few of the oldies and oddities in a little display case. More in the storeroom.


And then there are the stringed things like oud's, tater-bug mandolins, bajo-quinto's, and classics.

It helps that I'm an acoustic nut. There are only a couple in there that are straight acoustic, the L5 and the L50. The L50 is a sweet player and goes on a gig once in awhile with me.

Bought this Premier Cabria to use at the church.


This junky Pacific kit that I took because the church was going to throw it away. Dont know why I took it actually.


A very crappy photo of my Pearl Export that you can barely see.


If my son would quit unfriending me on facebook, I would post pictures of the other Pearl Export, Tama Swingstar, and Yamaha Absolute Oak kits, but its not to be.

I have problems in this world, but drum sets are not one of them.

I"ve got a guitar now. I was driving down our road on garbage day, about 5 minutes in front of the truck, when I noticed this guitar laying on a pile of black garbage bags. It was face down, so barely visible. I stopped and whipped it into the car. Turns out it's a '92 US-made Peavey Predator. From what I read on the web, not really such a bad guitar-pretty good for free!

I sold those new and they weren't a bad guitar at all. The amazing thing was that they were indeed U.S.A. made and only about $250.00 at the time. Another bit of worthless trivia is that the magnets in the those pickups were made right here in my home town.

I make biscuit tin guitars. This one has a classic Australian muscle car on it, a Holden Monaro. Open tuned to G, fretless and played with a slide. Had basic piezo pick ups that require a pre amp to get a good signal from. I also play Blues harp and sing.

Honest question here. Which do you like best, the Taylor or the Martin? I play a Martin HD-28 and think it has much more bottom end than the Taylor, and I like a big booming acoustic. It may just be my old ears, but the Taylors sound "tinny" to me. BUT, I see a hell of a lot of people playing them these days.

I'm partial to the Martin, it was about a year old when I got it so we have a long history. It does sound better than the Taylor IMHO.
