Piper created the PA-24 Comanche primarily to compete with Beech's V-Tailed Bonanza. It appears that Piper hit a home run in one of their first at-bats in the all-metal four-place single market. Preceeding the Cherokee series, and remaining in production for only about a decade (tooling was lost in a flood in 1971), the PA-24 is a prized aircraft today, and most of the examples found flying are well cared for.

Here are photos of three different Comanches, at rest and taxiing, taken at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2001. These may well be among the best examples of Comanches in the U.S. general aviation fleet.

Very few pilots have not seen a Comanche and thought that it would be a nice airplane to own, and a great many have found that they simply had to have one.

Whether you are a Comanche fanatic or simply like to look at its clean and slippery lines, you will enjoy having these photos to rotate in as your windows wallpaper.

Eight photos in a zipped archive, each 1024 by 768 pixels, 256 color. Sharp enough to please the eye, but easy on system resources.

Simply download the zip archive, unzip it in your Windows folder, and you can select any of the eight photos to be your active desktop wallpaper.

Eight BMP files in one zip archive, 18144K. Sample BMPs are at approximately 1/3 the resolution of the BMPs in the zip archive.

The majority of our sheet music pieces use electronically-produced demos on the item pages. We would much prefer to use actual recordings, so if you email us a digital recording or link to an online video and we end up using it as a demo on our site (fully credited), we will send you a coupon code good for US$25 toward your next purchase from our site.

Many of our sheet music licenses state that the purchaser does not have the right to record the work. We have modified our policy on this, and unless the license page states that you must obtain permission from a party other than to record the work, we will allow a small number (less than 50) of copies of an audio or video recording of a live performance to be made and distributed and/or posted to a free web site for viewing/listening, so long as, the composer, arranger, and lyricist are credited.

A customer commented: "Today I made my first purchase from Tributek. Every aspect of the transaction exceeded my expectations. The description of the product included a Quicktime demo in addition to a clear, interesting, well-written description of the product. The price of the product was a bargain. The ordering process could not have been easier or faster. I will definitely shop with Tributek again!"

Another customer commented: "I would like to compliment you on the ease of purchasing music on-line. I require the music for a wedding in a couple of weeks, and didn't want to wait for music to be sent in the mail. It was great to be able to hear the music and to know the length of the PDF file and performance time."

Another customer writes: "I bought some choral music off your site. It's great. I hope we can do all of it in our church. I don't know how you can sell it so cheap. It's a great service you offer."
