    It is my impression that there are more players who still use the Albert horns in Great Britain, so it may be the case in Down Under as well. Ask around a bit and see who you can find.

    I am on my third Yamaha baritone case, with the second and third coming from eBay. Apparently, there are dealers out there that retail the Yamaha horns but replace the coffin with (sigh) a gig bag.

    I borrowed a school sax once, when mine was still in the ether, somewhere between my wallet and my music room. It came in a standardish gig bag, and from a cosmetic basis, it sure looked cool.
