You've got £2500 burning a very large hole in your pocket and your suffering from GAS, without including mouthpieces, ligs, mic's, pedals and new cases, what TENOR would you buy and why?
Yup, I know that sax players are supposed to where sun glasses, but so would the front three rows of audience at any gigs I did. I'm not into bright and shiny. I don't mind the "vintage" look and I'm quite keen on the matt or brushed finnish.I assume you mean 'bright' as in 'garish', not tone? Have someone spray it with gold/black/whatever lacquer
That (an M2 and lotsa change) was certainly my immediate thought.
And even 15% off M2s at ww&b this month, so you could get one and your Hiscox, too, for less than the RRP!
Now there's something I hadn't thought about...Going Italian! That's a very good point so I'll have a browse.If its not banter, then there's little point. Let's squeeze that £2500. What about a Borgoni. My teacher Harry Fulcher swears by his!
I think this may be the path I take, but I won't be sure until I follow Dooce's advice and force myself to a day of misery, having to put myself through the ordeal of actually having to play those retched things!All indications are that I am going with the Mauriat 66 Rolled Unlaquered. Though I would like to try a vintage finish one side by side and judge the difference.
