Hello every one
My name is Peter Mc Farland and I live in the small town of Llangefni, it’s on an island off the west coast of the uk, Anglesey. I have been playing the alto for just over a year now and getting on with it OK, already on my third horn. First there was the Venus £80 eBay job, not good, then a Trevor James, it played well for a while but then the Chinese pads started to stick and drove me round the bend. Now I have a Selmer sa80Mk2 and like it, obviously being some sort of masochist I recently started with a tenor, a Farland & Thomas, not as easy as I thought it was going to be, but starting to get it. Yes the Farland & Thomas FATT100Q with Italian leather pads ect, a Selmer sa80Mk2 alike. Ok, so some of you may have spotted the similarity between my name and that of my tenor sax? Well done! After my alto experience I thought I would skip sages 1 to 2 and get as near to “I like it” as I could, in one step with out committing a large some of cash. So now I import and sell high quality, good value, very nice saxophones. When you get up in the morning you can never tell what the day will bring?
Peter

Welcome Pete, from one of the very many, maybe we could start the Pete squad, or Pete Appreciation society :w00t:

I moved here in June to escape the crime, etc., in London. I love it! If I want to escape I can suffer the overnight crossing to Aberdeen or raid the bank and be back on the mainland in an hour or so by plane.

Yes, maybe if I had remained and grown up there, then maybe I would feel the same, then again I am talking of 40 years ago, perhaps a different London?
