  1. Ben, That’s a good start !! Selling one,so soon. Well done and keep up the good work.

  2. Peter, I played on your PP35R last Saturday Night, as I felt that my heavy horns will not fit as I need playing vintage music (Artie Shaw and so on).
    It brought to me exactly what I needed.
    Some players were amazed both with looking as well as with playability.
