I agree with Dee. Keep the Bundy, spend the money on maintenance AND an
extra mouthpeice, extra reed cap, maybe a plastic reed (!) (because these
all have been known to be dropped in the bleachers and lost or broken)
bobby pins (for hooking) popped springs, screwdriver set, chewing gum
(for replacing pads), dollar bill (for cleaning pads), rubberbands to
keep keys closed that have Kleenex in them because the pad is lost),
gloves with holes in the fingertips (white ones soaked in tea can
simulate flesh tones) etc. You may call all of this "The MacGyver Kit"
Reference: an old TV show.
DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM A COMPANY THAT SETS A PACK OF RAVENING WOLVES ON
A MARCHING BAND FOR THEIR COMMERCIALS!
Have fun with your horns. It's what its all about.
