Okay, so I know at around 2005 she got her Inderbinden then "Dropped it," and switched back to her Mark VI. But in some more recent videos it would appear as though (judging by the neck) that she's been playing on a Balanced Action?

Maybe some one could confirm this? Is it maybe a backup saxophone? Because, I have seen other videos where she is still using her Mk VI.

Isn't curiosity enough reason to ask?

Also obsession.

Maybe she just wants everyone to know we can't afford her....

Because it gives us an excuse to look at pictures of Candy Dulfer, not to mention listen to her play.
Yes she's very nice but could someone please stop her singing (see youtube clip at #1). Shut up, Candy! To be fair, I don't like Lester Young singing either, just to put that remark in context. Shut up, Lester! Also, I think it's perfectly ok to have a good natter about what sax/mp etc she uses. "A source of innocent merriment" and all that ..

Now that makes excellent sense to me. I find her very easy on both eye and ear. But I must confess, when I look I am not watching her mpce or trying to determine if she is playing an SBA or an HBC or anything else.

Their just tools guys n gals. Not grails...although somewhat holey.

I was thinking the exact same thing...eye Candy for sure.

Several points here:

1. Candy is likely the prettiest popular sax player out there today. And visuals are a very important and valid part of any live performance. It's just worth saying.

2. The type of sax and setup that a pro uses is important to know since it indicates a level of quality, performance, a specific type of tone, and just general success as a tool worthy of being used by a high-achieving professional. Otherwise, everyone would just play a Yamaha 23 with a 4C mouthpiece and be content.

3. More information on Candy's current setup would be useful. This stuff about some sax that nobody else can get yet is not really answering the questions.

You can't buy them yet. AFAIK there's only one (or maybe a few) prototypes. I played it, it's a nice horn.
5400 euros...
