edit: Title should he Hard Rubber Sale.

I introduced Falco the Phil-Tone assistant Mascot recently.

Yesterday Falco was rushed in for emergency surgery. The vets took him apart and reassembled him during a three hour multiple incision surgery. He is an old guy but weathered the ordeal. He came home this evening using a ramp I built to get him in the car, but he has a lot of recovery and follow up in the weeks ahead and I have a whopper of a bill...so its time for a Vet/Holiday sale. Since i will be home acting as his nurse I we have time to make mouthpieces (he supervises).

So..anyway, 15 percent off all hard rubber Phil-Tone pieces. This does not apply to custom models or extreme tip sizes.
Also ask me how to obtain FREE international shipping.

The Sale applies to any Phil-Tone HR piece in the following sizes:

On Tenor sizes 7, 7*, 8 and 8*
Alto Meyer size 5,6 and 7
Sop .060, .065, .070

The sale ends Christmas day. I have to be fair to my vendors and not run lengthy and/or frequent sales.

What's your paypal address, I'm going to send you $50. I can't afford a new mpc right now, but I loved my dogs and miss them every day. Hell, I even had one engraved on a horn. The least I can do is donate.

Re: Phil-Tone Hard Sale (aka Emergency Surgery Sale)

Its very kind of you but there are people who need free money far more. There are many worthwhile charities for humans and animals. This is a temporary and unexpected setback. No one will go hungry. I want to offer this as a win win solution...I figure this is a chance for people to buy something they were thinking about in the first place and save a bit of money while also a way to gather funds for the bills. No matter what Falco will be loved and well cared for.

But again, thank you for such kind thoughts and generosity.

Happy holidays to you and yours.

I’m in. I need another Intrepid tenor 7* and a Sapphire sop .070”. They bring the Special Sauce to my Borganis. No rush - if someone needs theirs faster, feel free to put them ahead of me.

Hugs to Falco.

Sorry, I don't need another piece at this time.
As a dog lover I can empathize and send my best wishes to you and Falco.

Re: Phil-Tone Hard Sale (aka Emergency Surgery Sale)

Best wishes mean a lot. Thank you Charlie.

We are just glad to have him home. He is happy to be home too.

He is a 125 pound dog who in his past life was a little lap dog. He is a loving, gentle giant.

Daisy is a cross.
She was adopted from a shelter 9 years ago.
We believe she is a Dutch shepherd crossed with a Staffordshire terrier.
She’s been through a number of operations also in the last couple of years to have cancers removed.
Worst part is that you can’t explain to them why they’re going through it.

Re: Phil-Tone Hard Sale (aka Emergency Surgery Sale)

Your beard matches her facial hair :)

Falco probably has prostate cancer. Hopefully if so the biopsy will show it to be the slow moving type where is years catch up to him before cancer.
Sadly big dogs dont have long lives.

Its hard that they dont understand...they just look at you sadly wanting it to stop.

I wish you a good sale and a speedy recovery for your dog!

I am looking for a new mouthpiece right now but I thing a 7 or higher are too much for me right now. So I'll think I'll stick to my original plan of going to my local store and try a few out, see what fits my needs.

Re: Phil-Tone Hard Sale (aka Emergency Surgery Sale)

Sorry to hear, Phil, I lost my Pyrenees 2 years ago - heart attack, she was only 4 years old and had just gotten a perfect health bill from the vet and then I come home from work and she's lying dead in front of the house.

PM me your paypal, I don't have the money for another MPC but I'll be happy to chip in a little bit.

Re: Phil-Tone Hard Sale (aka Emergency Surgery Sale)

Again, thanks so much but if people are feeling charitable its very kind but please give it to a worthwhile charity...I was not planning on running a sale but this made me think it could be a win, win situation. The thoughts are heartwarming but as I mentioned above...no one will starve over this. The thought was to give a few people sitting on the fence an opportunity to save some money and help at the same time. I would never take donations as there are so many in real need. So sorry about your Pyreneese. I feel like I have been supporting the local vets economy this year. We lost our beloved kitty just a couple of months ago...that hurt too so the coffers are getting a tad thinner than I like. But again, no one will do without and finances will recover. So Im not saying it wouldnt help...but in my current search for a charity to actually partner with Phil-Tone I know there are those in desperate need and i consider myself lucky not to be among them. But again...thank you so much for the kind and generous thoughts.

Happy holidays
Phil
