I was thinking the same thing.
So how is it going for signups so far? Inquiring minds would like to know.
But so true. I used to have a Sax x-tet, where x = the number of players who would show up. It was always a dice roll, we could have started a lottery to guess the number. :)
I luv my S-992, SC-992, B-991, and SS-880 with the Elimona coin.--very good intonation on each of them. :)
I once had a jazz combo we called the Dissonance. I still remember my wife innocently asking, isn't that a derogatory name for a band. I just smiled.
Thank you for understanding David.
I kinda like Podunk Music Association. I am beginning to wonder if International is a thing of the past too. The Internet is driving us to one large community.
I clicked on the audio link and there was no file associated with the link. I'd love to here the song, is there something on YouTube?
Welcome to the Woodwind Forum. What mouthpiece are you using now? I tend to favor inexpensive, all-around pieces like a Meyer or Hite. I used to have lots of mouthpieces but now I tend to stick with...

Very cool. I have so many sax, clarinet, and flute stands now that I could write a blog post on the subject. Hmm ... :)
Wow, parting with instruments can be so hard. I agree with you, music is good for what ails you. Hang tough Steve.
What an excellent set of experiences you have. Here's hoping you find threads in this forum to engage with.
Wow, what a lovely looking instrument. It will be interesting to see how quickly this one sells.
We all have our favorite books. I glommed on to the Rubank Advanced Method for Saxophone I in high school. What drew me to the book was how lyrical the arpeggios are. It's the time in my life when I...
De nada. Often it's about finding that perfect customer who will pay top dollar or more for a purchase.
I have to say though, looking at your experience, that you would do fine with any of those instruments at this time of your development. Practice and learning fundamentals are more important now than...
I vote for this from eBay France today. Since it'll be gone soon I'll copy a bit about it:

There's a Linton Pic on ebay right now for sale at .99 cents plus $8 for shipping. Theres an oboe like yours at http://www.feinwerkstatt.net/instrumente/oboe-markardt/ that is (probably) priced too...
How many sales did this seller have and what was his reputation?
Wrap some paper or scotch tape around the cork.
Yup, here's my $200 flute. I added the keyhole covers. :)
