Re: Anyone know Harm Goeree, Netherlands

Go for it. I think the call to the Dutch police would be a good one. Maybe they might call and ask questions since you now have so much information on him. We could ask Marcel Shott what he thinks, he's in the Nederlands and is co owner of a music shop in Amsterdam (and plays a mean bass trombone)....

Re: When do you think you'll play with other people again?

They'll probably say it's safe to have a rehearsal with brass musicians, when they're 2 meters apart. The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra already started. They also say that for choirs it's an differe...

This only works if you have a middle/low embouchure right? I mean, if you're already playing with your mouthpiece on higher on the lips? Yuo can't do the opposite?

Actually, if you can read Dutch, you'll instantly know this is a scam.

It has 2 pipe hoses (lead pipes) and main and f alignment lifters (valves) and a weird user name and only 2 weeks on the site.

Combined with a to good to be true price, it is probably to good to be true ;)
