my daughter started on and used all thu school till grad uation a normandy resonite plateau  and the clueless band directors never even noticed. every director was a brass player. i have in my collection a martin fereies wood platteau with mother of pearl key touches. its a think of beauty but only an average player. the normandy plays much better. i have a second normandy i found long ago in a pawn shop that i plan to restore myself=hopefully.

You have a plateau with MOP key touches? That's very unusual, and could be a real collector's item. Could you post some pics here?

The Normandy plateaus are some of the best, if not THE best plateaus out there.

I would LOVE to see those MOP keys. I've never seen one like it. Could be pretty unique.
