Hi Sal and Lois, Thought I'd send along a picture of your piano light in action at Paul Hahn and Co., in Toronto. I'm at the piano of course, with singers Jean Stilwell and Patricia Zentilli.

Jerry Pritchard, San Bernardino, California, "I think the Performance Light is a great invention! It really puts out the light without blinding one's neighbour - and the long cord is right on!" check out The Flute Network Sal "onstage" at Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra setting up the "Basso" Performance Chairs for the bass section.

Paul Bresciani
"We searched for new bass chairs for two years. When we found the Concert Design 'Basso', we knew immediately this was what we wanted. Our choice had to be more than fully-adjustable; the chair we chose had to be rock solid. Our entire section whole-heartedly endorses the Concert Design 'concert' Basso."
Paul Bresciani, principal bassist, Buffalo Philharmonic 2005

Joel Quarrington "The thoughtful design and comfort level of the "Basso" make it the best available anywhere. I recommend the Basso to all players, amateur and professional. I guarantee the bass player will not find a superior stool." Joel Quarrington, principal bassist, National Arts Centre Orchestra.
