  • Separate Historic Winds

    Have you ever seen a dog looking up at the table, hoping some food is falling down for it? I'm the same, each time there is a promotion for the Historic Winds collections.

    Sold as a bundle, I will never find a reason to buy them. I could need the cornett, serpent, baroque oboe, but not the ophicleide or the natural trumpet. Or I could need them later, for a later purchase. But not now.

    Is there any hope these instruments will be unbundled? I would be willing to spend some money on them, but only on the instruments I really need.


  • Hi PaoloT, 

    Never say never. 

    But this will not happen in the foreseeable future. And even if, you will pay pretty much the same for separate instruments (separate licenses cost money) as you do for collection licenses. 

    My advice: Get the colletions now!

  • Hi Paul,

    Not to insist, but just to explain why I would love separate licenses.

    In this moment, I would need cornetto, serpent, baroque flute and baroque oboe. I would love a sackbut, if it existed in your collection. I wouldn't find any use for the other instruments, even if it would be nice to have them.

    More or less, four instruments, with the current promotion, could be about 4 x 70€ = 280€ (exl. VAT). Purchasing them in the full bundles would be, now, 700€. It's a difference big enough to decide not to buy them, when money is low.

    Just this.


  • Hi Paolo, 

    I see your point, thanks for sharing.
