I just want to say hi to all. It's been nearly 30 years since I last played (and not very well) my Yani A-4 alto. Unfortunately it's not playable. For sentimental reasons, I can't part with it so its restoration is on my to-do list. I recently purchased a Bauhaus Walstein M2 (heard Pete play it) and I'm loving it. Forums, postings, blogs and such are all new to me so I hope I don't break any rules. From what I've read so far, this seems to be a very diverse, informative and friendly forum. What has amazed me the most during my rediscovery of the sax, are all the resources and tools available. Back in the day, there were no mp3's, PDFs, midi files, backing tracks, on-line tutorials, forums, you-tube, etc. With all that available to me today I'm really have fun with my new sax. I was born and raised in Canadian but now live in New Jersey.
