Just wanted to say a big thank you for your help and advice, i did as you suggested and sent an email to Rapidreeds, and got an email back this morning to say that they would check with their suppliers, late this afternoon i received another email saying that the m9 will be back in stock tomorrow.
so hopefully i will soon have one.
once again many thanks.
regards Zoot

Glad to be of help, Zoot. www.rapidreeds.com are a very helpful firm, and I have had excellent contact with them by email and telephone. I'd be interested to hear your impressions. In its Alto version the Metalite (I have an M7) is probably louder and more cutting than the Vandoren Jumbo Java but lacks a little of its subtlety.

Kind regards
Tom

That's an understatment, if my tenor one is anything to go by....

But they're good for loud edgy stuff, and good value.
