Distinguished SOTW Member
After selling my Selmer to a another SOTW member (who's been great to deal with, btw), I bought, from a friend of mine in DFW, a B&S-made Guardala alto. I was blown away when I tried it out, and it was a no-brainer for me to buy it; it's more my style than the Selmer (which is also a great horn), and such an incredibly solid, well-made, great-sounding instrument. For all the B&S fans on this forum, thanks for the info you've given me over the years! I'm fully in your camp now. I love my 82z tenor and have no intention to get rid of it, but someday, if I need a backup, a B&S will be high on the search list.
