Hi All,

After not playing much at all for the past 2/3 years... I'm back playing and frequenting this forum again... I've found a new teacher (first lesson tomorrow) so hopefully will make some real progress over the next could of years...

Not improved at all for years, so still a real 'late bloomer' yet to bloom...

All,

First lesson was good (well the teacher was...) I'm not but hey that's why we have lessons... Certainly is re-kindling my desire to play so that's definitely good news...

Had a practice after the lesson and the new practice routine is certainly more interesting... Hopefully, it will keep my interest this time...

Keep playing...

All,

I am enthused enough to have sold my Ref 36 and just bought a Borgani Pearl Silver Tenor Jubilee... It sounds quite different (though there is a minor leak on the C pad so low B and Bb are not easy... I think I'm going to love it, once it's had a tune up. It seems to match very well to the Vintage Raganato wooden mouthpiece I've got as well.

Your previous visits were probably before my enrolment but I hope you enjoy the cafe again, and the sax of course,but with gear like that who wouldn't, I don't think I could of parted with a ref 36,but I must admit the Borgani sounds very interesting...john

OOOhhh, very posh I'm sure! :))) I hope you enjoy that gleaming new Borgani :w00t: It'll be a blast to play once you get it tinkered with. Nice one ;}

It's not gleaming and new, it's a 2nd hand one... I'm slowly cleaning it and making it looks relatively shiney. Ideally it could do with stripping down and a full clean but don't think I'll try that yet! I've just bought Stephen H's Haynes Manual but don't think a full dismantle will be the first job...
