Re: Just wondering??
I gotta agree with Kelsey on this one. I have students..quite a few..and find that the young players do much better on the more modern horns..it's my feeling that a vintage horn is appropriate for a player who knows very well exactly the sound he's looking for, and which of the vintage axes might give him.or her ..that sound. I lust after an old Conn naked Lady tenor..I can hear that sound, but haven't come across one that I can afford..or pry out of the local school system..what a shame. I feel that the young player would be wiser to look into Yamaha, Yanigasawa, or a mid ninties Selmer and wait until they are mature enough to know what vintage they might be after..a King..a MarkVI..a Conn..a nice old martin..but until they have the sound in their ears..go modern..that's my story
