But remember, Phil, Matt is still a salesman. It's his job to make spending a ton of money pleasurable. Are you getting the best info? Not always.

Mary Ann is thrilled with her MW 182. It's perfect for her.
Now this: http://www.chisham.com/messages/89940.html
Mary Ann is talked into that MW 182 by posters, most notably "F tubist" who has played the horn. Mary Ann argues that the low range isn't good... that's what Matt told her when he talked her out of the horn. The Yamaha is much better in the low register, he said. Is he steering her towards the doggy 621 that's been at Dillon Music for about a year now? I don't know, but the horn that she now owns and loves would have never been sent to her to try if not for people on this BBS who were objective.
I'm glad you had a good experience with Matt, but I'm with Toby Tuna all the way on this one.
