Well done mate!!!Don't worry about the new year's resolution. I'm sure you won't regret it. Fishing is a very "over-rated" past time any way!!!. Let us know how you get on with it.

Yes after speaking with you i went back to my wifes cousins who owns the 991 curved sop and 991 tenor and had another blast.I heard Birdman (pete scaddan) at Studiosaxophones had 1 in so bit the bullet.I had a back up tenor for years in the past and i need 1 for the coming year with 3 bands going on.Just joined a new wedding band thats booked up nearly 12 months ahead so want to be safe.I would only go the top line horns for a back up so the Z and 991 will sort me a treat,both outstanding works of art with there own sound and thing going on,what more could you have or want.:D

Nice one Dave. 10 days eh? - well, you did well I reckon, gave it a great shot, but never mind...

Actually, you need a back up, so this wasn't GAS, this was a serious. You're still OK, go get that letter back.

Well I made no such resolutions on account I'd be sure to break them.

I had planned to buy (and was just about to order) a new Mac Pro and associated goodies however last night mrs hd said I can't have it right now. I'm well pi**ed. Seems the brownie points earned by finally replacing the front and back doors, loaning her son a big bundle so he could buy his first house, loaning her daughter enough to buy a car, buying mrs hd a new laptop so she could give her daughter her old one all count for nowt.

I now can't buy the Mac Pro until I have finished the bedroom and study, the latter requires a lot of disruption, some cost and a fair bit of time on my part so it ain't gonna happen for at least a month.

Spent most of my dosh on the lot of em now can't dip into the joint pot! Seems fair don't it :(

Dave, don't be too hasty. You never know, you might need a back-up for the back-up and have you got a baritone or C sax? Surely you are in need of a new mouthpiece or two, and then there is always that lig.
By the way, if you find that you have too much gear I am happy to take a good Yani off your hands - I've got £50 left in my piggy bank.

Really liking this 991 horn.Finding the centre and it's very nice.Of the 3 or 4 991 horns i played this is the best,feels very blown in to me.I like it alot.My Z can be more in ya face but the 991 will be great for my jazz duo stuff.
