It reminds me of a story that Paul Coats once told me of a school's silver plated Mark VI bari. He was at this school to give a workshop, and he saw a kid walking down the school's hallway using the bari like you would a walking stick. The bow of this once-lovely bari was so flat, that the bari could nearly stand on its own! WTF is wrong with students; with the teacher; with the entire system, that would allow for the abuse of instruments to go unchecked or unchallenged for long enough for damage like that to occur to such a valuable instrument?
