So nice to hear back from fellow sax folks. I'm not quite sure where to put my reply, so will have to experiment a bit. Brisbane is in Australia, it's the capital city of Queensland, about 400km north of Sydney. Thx all for your nice replies, looking forward to connecting more with you all.
Cheers

Hi Susie,
As a fellow BW sop owner, I can see that you have good taste-not sure that's a good thing round here!!!
Enjoy your sax when it arrives. Look forward to hearing how you get on with it.
In the meantime, welcome from sunny Scotland.
Cheers

Hi welcome!

We seem to be acquiring an ever expanding antipodean community.

Don't take everything said in this mad-house too seriously :w00t:

Hi Susie!

A Big Welcome from Skabertawe's two Bauhaus Walstein soprano sax owner - one bronze straight and one bronze curved one - down by yer in Old South Wales.One of my elderly friends used to be the wife of an infamous Anglican Bishop who was based in Brisbane some years ago - William Baddeley!

What mouthpiece/ligature/reed combination do you use? Hope you have a good time at the Cafe!
Kind regards
Tom

Thanks so much Tom and all for the welcoming comments. I hadn't heard of Rev Baddley but he does sound a real character, I appreciated the posting of his obit. My BW soprano is still in transit between London and Brisbane, the ups tracker had it last lodged in at Honolulu. The purchase comes complete with mouthpiece and ligature which I thought I'd use for a bit then research different options. What MP and lig do u use? Any other suggestions out there?
cheers all
Susie

I use the mouthpiece etc. listed below this post - A Soprano Planet mouthpiece made by Joe Giardullo, which is specifically designed to help produce a Jan Garbarek vibe. I would recommend the Bari Esprit soprano mouthpiece which I just purchased - £14.00 in UK and a great, darker sounding mouthpiece - one of the best under £100 in my opinion. http://forum.saxontheweb.net/showthread.php?8497-Bari-Espirit-mouthpiece

For a really nice contemporary soprano sax sound have a listen to the Portico Quartet when you have a moment.....
Kind regards
Tom

Hallo Susie and welcome. Me and Mrs Dooce spent Christmas Day in Brisbane, eating turkey off the barbie. Later, we did a tour looking at the house Xmas decorations - which are seriously mad. Nice city, nice people. As a result of that trip, I now have a mate there who keeps posting beautiful pictures of sun-soaked Queensland on Facebook, which I find so annoying to some one living in the middle of England that I am thinking of de-friending him. I travelled with a soprano sax and one of my lingering memories is of playing The Pogue's "Dirty Old Town" with, this guy singing, in a karaoke pub session...... Happy days

My sop is also a Bauhaus - it coped with 7 months travelling superbly - a solid bit of kit. For what it's worth, I went through many mouthpieces but for me by far the best is Pete Thomas's own PTT 7 which is now a permanent fixture.

Have you been to Sydney Andy? It's a fun place to visit. Is your son a sax person too?
cheers,

Seven times and counting Susie. No Duncan doesn't play the sax, just like his Dad!
I have hopes for my grandson though.
