He needs pre-punched leather nuts. He ordered some from OSI but their holes were to large. Has anyone else got an idea of what is needed here and = where to get it? Maybe the replacements are a man-made material?   As always,   Thanks!   John V

Could get some pads and drill =   his own holes (boy, that sounds BAD).       _______________________________________________________________ Get Free Email and Do More On The Web.

(back) Subject: Louis Couperin From: Innkawgneeto@webtv.net (N Brown) Date: Fri, 16 Jul 1999 23:31:03 -0400 (EDT)   Friends, for my Sept. 11 concert, I plan to play a Fantaisie and Duo by Louis Couperin. Problem: I need some info on him. The Grout Book (my old trusty crusty one) doesn't list him, and the info I found on the web is very scant (no dates or anything). I know he was Francois' uncle, but that is about it.   Any help will be appreciated. --Neil Brown, AAGO, MMus Barnegat, NJ USA
