Definitely a good selection. Also definitely not terribly pleasant; on
my first visit to Dale's I waited in line as the clerk used hard-sell
tactics to get an 11-year old girl to buy a silk drawcloth for her
clarinet. "You'll be the only girl in your school who has one."
Other than that, I haven't had any problems with them.
