I play mostly classical and gospel music (the mellow tone should be right up my alley), and have big hands (glove size 2XL), so I have a hard time with the Yani's palm keys. I like the idea of the adjustable palm keys (I have an SX90R tenor and like the keywork layout). I found a deal on musiciansfriend.com for $2379 and I just ordered it. It was a restocked horn with a 45 day return option. I assume someone else tried it and didn't like it and sent it back. They also have a Silverstar with the sterling neck for 500 more, but I thought the copper body was right up my alley. Joe Jazz, I was tempted to put another bid on your horn on the Bay, but chickened out at the last moment. Thanks for the replies all.
