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.
