Guess its just the case of playing and practice long hgh notes and runs I still need to master the a3 - d4 those are still illusive to me the last 6 notes of the higher register are a PITA to play.

Not too sure depends how many hours a day you play with it, probably a month should certainly be long enough I think. Could also be that your fingers and lips need to be trained still getting use to it.

papadiaz take it you are from the UK ? hence the £200 - £250 which is about 400 - 500 USD or what-ever the rate XE.com gives.
For your money what you listed is on target.
Yamaha 211's, Pearl 501 and Trevor James TT 10X.
Where abouts in the UK are you just out of interest ?

Not too sure if my skin is very acidic or not but the silver plating on my Pearl 505RE has come off in places, I do know some silver clothes are abrasive so the softer ones would be better suited.
