Another Happy Customer-Mike Green-with a message from Spain.

Hi Peter,
 
It’s just over 12 months since I purchased the PPTR37 from you. What a babe she is, love her to bits.
 
I’m doing mainly Country and Western here in Spain and find our precious more than adequate for any occasion.
 
She is well maintained and although the lacquer is thin in places is still in perfect condition.
 
Would you reply and let me know what she was developed from, I’m torn between a Bach and a Yammy 8335. The water keys and start of the lead pipe are hexagonal and the main tuning slide is double braced.One side of the 1st slide finger yoke is slightly higher than the other and the 3rd slide has a single hexagonal screw at right angles to prevent the tuning slide from falling out.
 
Great purchase, thanks Peter.
 
I look forward to your reply – love the blog!
 
Regards
 
Mike Green
 
Hola Peter,
 
Thanks for the offer of adding a photo to the blog – please find this attached.
 
The band began its life about 18 months ago and works mainly supporting local charity events, predominantly Amidas, which is a Village charity that does excellent work with handicapped children and adults.

 

As you can see there are plenty of us old timers in the group but as they say “there ain’t no substitute for experience”.

The Band is constantly in a state of development as  local talent is rather thin on the ground.

 

We live in a small village called Mollina close to Antequera in the province of Malaga.

Should I have the opportunity to pass on contacts to you then of course I will and meanwhile I shall continue to bang the Pollard drum and wave the flag from here in sunny Spain.

Kind Regards

Mike Green
