It has not quite been a month since I posted a very controversial thread. I will let you discover it if you so wish. And over the past few weeks I have been doing a lot of practicing on all my horns. But more specifically on Clarinet, and dang that is a hard instrument to learn, but its fun to see the huge leaps that I have been making in learning it. Its hard to believe that not even 2 weeks ago I was squeaking all the time.
A lot of my post have been on equipment because after I joined SOTW I bought into the theory of its the equipment that can really help. So I started searching for a better Alto. And the search took me around a couple of great horns. One of which I later sold, on E-bay. But the other my Yani, I contemplated selling, but didn't go through with.
I have not sold the Yani 800, but instead kept it and it has been my main Alto for awhile now. Though it needs a proper set up, and should be brought in for some tweaking. It plays great (though). I pulled out my Yamaha 23, and practiced on it for a day or so. And I noticed that I sounded like me. HOLY CRAP, thats new.

Anyway the point of this long stinkin post is to thank you guys, for not giving up on me. Even though I'm sure you wanted to. And I have learned a valuable lesson that I will carry with me for along time.

Thank You so much.

I purchased a Keilwerth SX-90 in May. I played on a Selmer(USA)Omega tenor sax for 20 years. Guess what???After owning the Keilwerth for 5 months I sound the same but have a easier time w/ the low notes cause of the keilwerth biggerbow/bell. Same conclusion as you!!!!!!!!!It is the player not the eqiupment.

I think the better equipment sort of helps you get to the point where you can go back and sound amazing on anything. Or maybe it's just because you practise more, because you like it... Who knows? That's my take.

One thing's for sure...the better player you become, the more you'll keep playing, and the better you'll get, regardless of equipment.

Keep on woodsheddin'.

If you really mean it, Carbs, I think this is the wisest thing i've heard you say. The version i like is "Our lives teach us who we are."

Maybe i should have saved that for the "Say something intelligent" thread, because it really is the best i can do.

All the best.

Yeah I meant that I made alot of mistakes but my first one wasn't listening to you guys. And the mistakes I made were able to learn from, so they hopefully won't happen again.

I'll pass. I just say I play sax, and they come running.
Though I tend to use the term "play" loosely.:twisted: :twisted: :D :twisted:
