So they said they had a set of vibes for me.........

Yep they said they had a set of vibes for me at Bucknell University. One of the more expensive Ivy League schools in the country.

I went up to play them, and the f*R%*R% gel damper had NO gel in it. So they went and got me felt pads and sad I shouldn't complain because Stefon Harris played on these. I said, well I bet Stefon was at least as pissed off as I am right now.

And then I said, IF A VIBE PLAYER ASKS YOU IF YOU HAVE A SET OF VIBES YOU SHOULD SAY NO, BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A SET OF VIBES.

ASSHOLES.

I looked at Bucknell when applying to undergrad programs. I visited the campus, then turned around and never looked back. Good to see I made the right decision! :P

man did you make the right decision.

you know i get really depressed when i think about this. here's this expensive ivy league school. and their vibes are a piece of crap.

that is sooo not cool. and they say to me they had stefon harris play on them. like that is supposed to make it ok? no that makes it worse.

Tony... Bucknell isn't in the Ivy League. And I would bet that most Ivy League schools do not even own a vibraphone. MAYBE if they have a school of music. Otherwise it's BYOV!

Ooh, by the way good discussion: what's the worst instrument you ever had to play on?? I once performed in front of 250 people on an old Jenco, propped-up with a wooden board cause the pedal was all messed-up! Thrilling.

good idea steve, i'll post it.
