Had a few silverplated horns over the years and have been wanting a new 1 to add to my stash so after looking about and checking out reveiws i went for the M2 Pro Walstein tenor.Just got my neck custom silverplated on my Yamaha Z but was wanting more silver.Got the M2 from birdman (Pete Scaddan) of Studio saxophones and it came today.Was wanting alot from this horn and i got alot.Opened the case and WOW,HOLY COW,what a treat to the eyes she is.Looks amazing,silver neck,body,bell and dark gold lacquer keywork.Stunnng.Build is top notch,like a tank and ergonomics are very fast and nice,as for sound its cracking.Very focused and compact but still very flexible.Great core to it.Love it and the BW M2 is a must try.

Hiya Dave
Thought your missus had put her foot down as you hadn't bought anything for a few months.
Sounds like a cracking horn, have you used it live yet? Will look great with your white strap.
If you ever get a job at a gypsy wedding you'll outbling the bride.

Hi Dave,

I have had my M2 Tenor for just over a year and am well pleased, will be taking it in for a service shortly but it does not seem to have deteriorated in any way. I started using a PPT8 mouthpiece about a month ago which after initial misgivings seems to be a good match with the BW M2 Tenor (I'll try and put together a full report on findings if anybody is interested).
