Hi - I'm Paul, and I've been playing on and off for 30 years or so, in a fairly predictable cycle:

- miss playing
- find a band
- realise how rusty I am
- practice, get back to OK again
- life/work interrupts play
- repeat from top

Currently in Preston, with a new baby on the way - so maybe I'm in the market for a saxophone mute - do those foam ones work? I bet I could make one myself that would work just as well...any ideas?

Mmm...this prompted a discussion with my wife, and in the end we decided that, on balance, she should have the baby. Call us boring and conventional, but that's the way we're doing it.
Hi Paul

Welcome to the forum I think you may be right about the baby,that's the way we did it I think ,can't remember properly now, as for the mute haven't you seen those cute little shaped boxes on ebay you can place your little sax in and blow away to your hearts delight until it breaks your back,I bet they sell loads of them?:))):))):)))..john

Welcome Paul. A mute might get you out of the life/work interrupts play part of the cycle, but by most accounts they are not that effective.
After our second child was born a learned academic that I knew came up to me at a meeting at work and said "Congratulations...Have you found what causes it yet?"

Welcome to the cafe. Why use a mute? Just apply a Pampas to the wrong end (of the baby ;}) And then blow as hard as you like (not the baby :shocked:)
