FORUM MAINTENANCE The forum will be closed today at approx 13:34 GMT hopefully only for about 30 minutes Sorry for any inconvenience and stress this may cause. Just remain calm and take slow breaths, it won't be for long
3 melodeons, several boxes of bits, a concertina and a big russian button accordion.
Several trumpets - I think about 4 - plus a rotary valve trombone with a bell that falls off ))
One tenor and one soprano.
Quite restrained really!
I tend to focus on no more than 2 or 3 at a time. Currently having a sax sabbatical so playing Trombone, Long Cornet & Trumpet. Usually mess about with some others in the course of a week.
My main target at the moment is to learn trombone, and get to grade 5 standard in 2 years:shocked:
My favourites are Alto Sax and Long Cornet.
instant reaction was "not many", and then I started to think about it...
2 x Alto (that I play)
2 x Alto (for restoration - yes Saxlicker, it's those two!!!)
2 x Alto (that I loan to students)
1 x Tenor (for restoration - or sale - I'm unlikely to restore it as I have no desire to play it)
1 x flute (that I'm playing more as I've just started a trio in which it fits really well)
1 x harmonica (for fun only)
1 x keyboard (for fun, and experimenting with chords and transcriptions)
(can I add my sons 3 x guitars, and daughters recorder)
5 Guitars (1 classical, 1 jumbo, 2 electric, 1 bass guitar) also a wrecked Ovation copy waiting for some TLC which doesn't really count (yet!).
1 Upright Piano
3 ancient Casio keyboards (2 ok for a bit of MIDI, whereas the third is tiny, battery operated and only covers 2.5 octaves but fine for working out melodies).
1 collection of blues harps (two boxes, keeping the note-benders separate from those that don't!)
1 Alto Sax
1 assortment of percussive things (tambourine, flamenco cajòn, maracas although drum loops on my BOSS gizmo do a far better job).
So I make that 16 without counting the harp and percussion things as 'multiples'.
1 alto sax - started on this but don't play it at the moment
1 tenor sax - my main instrument
1 soprano sax which I try to play now and then
1 clarinet (from Netto) which I would like to play but find the fingering difficult
2 Xaphoons (1 acquired inadvertently) - don't play these
1 ukulele which I have just bought and am now trying to learn
1 violin - from my youth but can't bear to part with it as I hope to have another go at it someday. Needs a new bow.
This is giving me plenty of ammo to fight the "get another saxophone campaign"
Compared to you lot I've got nuthin.
Sue still says one in one out ( musical instruments that is) although it does remind me of when she left our Kate on the bus during breastfeeding. We got her back from the depot.
