For all interested in adjustable barrels, I’ve contracted with a different European producer and will have some barrels in stock in 45-50 days. It is my hope that these barrels are of the same high quality as the zoom barrels and will arrive in a much more timely fashion.

We'll be back in from vacation on 7 August. Please forgive delayed responses to phone, email, and FB messages.

Still waiting on more Zoom barrels...one day we should have some more. This is the longest we've waited for a shipment. Anyone in Germany want to pick some up for us?!?!?

We are still waiting on our next shipment of Zoom barrels...hopefully they will arrive eventually.

03/17/2017

Unfortunately I won't have any appointment times for repairs until May. Also, Zoom barrel shipments have been extremely slow...so the supply is dwindling. Here's to hoping they make some more for all of the special orders that came in.

Happy New Year! Hopefully this year will be blessed with more timely shipments of Zoom Barrels from Germany...still waiting!

Anyone in the market for a Tosca A?
Hand selected and played by NSO member for 2 years. Setup by Mark Jacobi. I purchased it 3 years ago and have maintained it. It has rarely been used over the past 2 years. It's been kept cozy in a Lomax Humidipro Ultra case. Even has gold plated thumb tube and register tube.
PM me for price and details.

Spending the day in Philly with my mentor, Mark Jacobi. He is the best!!!!!

It's one of those days...sure you didn't know the molding was important inside the case.
