Howdy

I'm a seasoned alto, tenor, and bari sax player. Been truckin along on the clarinet too. Looking to get a soprano some day soon. This year I was appointed second chair tenor in Jazz and Wind Ensemble, so I no longer play alto with a band. I play second chair bari in regular band (which is soo boring). But I do keep up on the alto. Director might let me come in and do a special alto solo or sumtin. We'll see. Current venture at this point is to get me a new tenor. My sights are dead set on a Selmer LaVoix of WWBW for $1,449. Of course a metal Otto Link and a few other odds and ends to go along, but ya kno. That'll be a blast. Happy saxophoning!

    An update, although it seems some might care less. I am not getting a metal mouthpiece, for my director thinks I'm not ready for it. I'll take his advice and get one down the road. I should have my LaVoix within two weeks (I hope). Still waiting for the tax refund, but it only takes WWBW 10 days to ship a horn, so as soon as I get the check the money will be sent, cleared, then shipped. Not much longer. But it won't be soon enough for me. Take care and happy saxophoning!
