Who's ever sold a sax only to deeply regret it later on?

In the early 90s I sold an original Conn 12M Bari in immaculate condition. All original without a dent on her and played like a dream. Unfortunately I foolishly thought that I'd only really want/need an alto (I was very young and foolish). Regretted it ever since.

Nope, but I did start on alto when I should have started on tenor and I ended up buying a Hanson SA-8 which was very nice and then a Keilwerth SX90R which I hated. So I wish I had never bought the SX 90R.

Really?

Keilwerths have always held a certain appeal for me, even though I've never played one. I'm considering getting a new Bari soon and want to try one.

Why did you hate it?

Mostly sticking keys. It's with Jon Myatt but is going to Howarths soon to be sold. It's an alto.
