Bari as a cello?

I can clearly remember the sax sounding stringy in my youth. " I hated it" and your sound clip says to me a clean sax sounds like a "fiddle".

I believe Coleman Hawkins played the cello in his youth.

How's this for a tenor sax imitating a cello?

More like a viola but makes me feel embarrassed to even have tried! :confused:

Well, it's a cello piece originally but I don't know if this is a transposed version.

I liked your recording, too :thumb:. Sorry I forgot to say so :doh:

:)Nice sound , have you decided what to do re Bari yet.

Jx
This what I had actually decided: After the bari goes back to it's owner then my bari playing has finished.

Cons:

I can't justify the cost.
There is no necessity for it in my band.
I wanted it to be my only instrument but can't let my tenor go I love it too much.
I don't have room for it in the house.
My wife may kill me (despite her suggestion that I buy one).
It's too much metal to lug around.
It causes a pain in my left thumb-joint.
The case it huge so when not in the case it takes up twice the space (see above, I don't have room..).
It barely fits in my car (old Daewoo Matiz).
Reeds are bloody expensive.
I imagine a service costs an arm and a leg.

Pros:

My dog doesn't whine.
I want one.

My modified decision based on the balanced argument above ;} is that when the bari goes back to it's owner I have to go and play another, in a shop, leaving my credit card at home to see if I can get the same sound on a cheaper manufacturer. If I can it's another pro... if I can't then I'll have to have another think....:w00t:

*********************

Realistically though, it ain't gonna happen, it's just too big. Simple as that.

You really should put the dog first. Trade the car for a van and keep the case in there;}

That's just nitpicking.
