Just won an ebay auction for a Gear4Music bari. Please tell me this doesn't count as GAS, as it's my first.

"All" I have to do now is sort out a stand, mouthpice, reeds, strap/harness, ...

Wish me luck, folks!

Awesome - Definitely the direction I want to head in - forget all the high-pitched wailing get some low-down vibes honkin'

Congrats :thumb:

So BM, how long have you been in this state of denial? Have you had previous treatment or been diagnosed as suffering from delusions? >:)

You've now set foot on the road to perdition. Enjoy :w00t:

Congrats, enjoy it for a while before you go in search of yet more saxes you still are missing :)

I'll try and remember when the rumbling comes down the M62 that it's Big Martin and not another fracking earthquake.Rattle those cobbles mate.

Well done mate, you've just opened up a whole new world of pleasure. You'll be searching the internet and especially youtube for those elusive bari solos.
Enjoy yourself Martin, I'm sure you'll make her sing.

Thanks, everyone for the well-wishes. Still slightly in the "what have I done?" phase at the moment, so the support has been most welcome. :thumb:

On the subject of mouthpieces (or should I start another thread?) I have Rico Royal (ie Graftonite) B7 pieces for tenor, alto and sop that I'm pretty happy with and was thinking of starting with the same thing on the bari. But haven't been able to find one on the net. RapidReeds, who I got the others from, don't have any bari Graftonites at all. Have they stopped making them? :confused::crying:
