You can't force them to do anything, but they should at least be open to
swap if they want you to come back, send your friends, etc.  When I first
read about I, I thought it was his omen to play the lower harp for all its
'groove tones'; I had a similar thing happen to me trying to get a minor
tuned harp -- they stuck me with the harmonic minor (by his accident and my
not looking closely enough), and before I knows it, I do a cupla hava
nagilas, and say what the heck.  I mean I was also POed, but it's not like
you won't find a use for it (a gift to your best friend, your next album
photo shoot, all shiny unused :)  Do what ya gotta do and good luck.

Switch hittin' here, which Primich we talkin' about here?  MY PLEASURE, or
the one with his name on it.  Or some Mannish Boy thing?  What's it like --
mostly fast and blast, or down easy?  Lotsa tricks and positions? Covers?
Originals? AOTA?  You can tell my interest is piqued, but I don't know much
about the guy, except from some ads I've seen.
