I am doing my moving sale. Knowing how paypal can screw people over suddenly, I have been very reluctant to accept paypal payments.

I use red and blue leads, which are more flexible and weaker, so larger sizes are even more important. I have a 3.75 kg keyboard, too. OH darn, you are even more amazing than I thought. I don't see red and blue leads around much in the market. But your keyboard can't be 3.75kg. You use a Model F-12...
