Buying a replacement instrument isn’t as expensive as you might think, Certainly not like the days before the internet when you’re only choice was to venture into the nearest big city and buy one from a shop at an astronomical price.
Now, thanks to the internet you can pick up replacement instruments and parts for them at very reasonable prices – you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home.
I am running the 2018 London Marathon to raise money for Livability UK in memory of my dad. If you can I'd appreciate any donation you can spare. http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/deansaliba
