Hi, I used to play tenor sax years ago...sold the sax, bought some bagpipes...still have the pipes and decided to buy an alto sax, just for fun. I live in Leicestershire, out in the country (which is great for practising). I do treework for a living and foster rescue greyhounds for fun. I am for all intents and purposes a complete novice on the sax but I love the sound (not of my playing obviously). I love old instruments and love nothing better than mackling together an instrument out of old bits and pieces.
