I hope mine is after 5 yrs of fooling with it. I learned I was OK in the first place. Still playing my Selmers after owning and playing a sh*tload of the best vintage and cheapo Asian horns and quite a few Mpc Lig & neck trials. I'm back to reality I'm back to 4 Saxes & 4 mpcs. Whew(!) I'm glad it's OVER. I kept only one spare Tenor pc. (a Lakey HR I got from Claude himself).I've had it for many yrs and I won't part with it.I must say tho my GAS made me some good bread buying and selling horns. :D

No mine is far from being complete.
Mostly Instruments. My Tenor is perfectly set up though. Maybe a lig. tops but other than that it is time to buckle down and pratice. I would like to do some stuff with Alto. I need to buy/rent a Clarinet, and LEARN it before I go to college. Its going to be a busy year for me. After college I might think about getting a horn or two engraved if Jason is still doing it by the time I graduate.

I think mine might be over. I have accumulated so many mouthpieces, reeds, ligatures, and horns that to work out all the possible permutation would take several lifetimes. Of course, there's always that bass sax...

Oh yes definitely! (funny though, it always is just after I've bought something ;) )

Mine will be over as soon as buy the LA Sax curvy you just put up on eBay. Then I'll be okay. Then I'll be okay. Then I'll be okay. Then I'll be....

You asked this question as if giving up my GAS should be a good thing :twisted:

Actually, I've morphed my insanity into more-or-less "horse trading" gear. My rule is I have to sell something if I buy something.

I really am tired of the endless search for the magic mouthpiece. I sound good on what I have now and am just continuing to attempt to improve my playing. I guess I'm gassing for playing improvement.

Aren't we all? But it takes that other model horn, or mouthpiece, or ligature, or reed, that I've been reading so many good things about, right here on SOTW, or that I heard someone play whom I admire and want to emulate and can't because I don't have their setup, etc., etc., :cool:

I'm where Cash was before he started this thread and announced his cure, possibly not with as many toys, and certainly not with the business success he's had selling those he discarded, but I've slowed to a snail's pace compared to the helter-skelter buying and selling I was doing a couple of years ago, and coming up on the short end of the selling stick more often than not.

My tenor is all setup and I'm just sitting with that for awhile. I have a list for upgrading Soprano and perhaps my BARI then come back and get an alto (I already have a nice one with a good setup). It's gonna be awhile though, doesn't matter though as I am in no rush now that my main ax is all set.

I have WAY too much stuff to justify for my level of playing ability.
3 Tenors, 2 Altos, 2 Guitars, Bass, Keyboard, Drums, Trumpet, Recording Equipment... well, I may need a trombone.

Yes. I no longer feel something is missing or wrong with my mouthpiece on every horn.

But I will continue to trade just for fun and curiosity...now that I have drawer full of them.

I did go through a major bout of GAS that lasted a while...and it was worth it...but im glad I found what I was looking for.

I don't have GAS. It doesn't consume me and I don't spend much time thinking about it. My alto and tenor are top of the line models, I've got some great mouthpieces, and my clarinet and flute are pretty damned good even if they aren't top of the line. My soprano leaves something to be desired though. I've been told that when I go into the Navy that they will buy me new horns if I want. I don't know the limitations on that. But I can envision a set of Yanigasawa 992's. Alto, tenor, and a curvy soprano. Maybe an R-13 clarinet to go along with them.

If you bring crappy horns with you they will definately buy you new ones.
