Listed by: Bruce Behnke <behnke@isat.com> ...
his message:
"My father, age 83, decided it is time to part with his practice instrument which is a second hand Schober (sp?) that he picked up about fifteen years ago. The console doesn't look too bad but the electronics would prabably need to be gone over or possibly replaced. Although he would take some money for it, he is more interested in having it used. It is currently available and located in Bay City, Michigan.  Contact me if you are interested. Bruce".
