Now....this is ok! It IS unfortunate that the horns come the way they do.
However, recognizing that they do is important.....and, if one wishes to
put the horn in prime playing condition, there are ways to do it. Not
everyone will choose to do so, nor will everyone need to do so
(considering their level). However, if one wishes to have the instrument
last in the condition it was meant to be in, the service is still very
much recommended.
