I stumbled upon a site where SOMEBODY reviews MANY saxophones from a repairman's/engineer's point of view as well as from an aesthetic point of view. He talks about differences between different models as well as about changes within a model line over the years, regarding post placement, key supports, pivot screws, blue steel springs, stainless springs ... he seems to know saxophones inside and out. But, I can't remember how to get there or who he was. If someone has a strong suspicion of who/what I'm talking about, would you be so kind as to steer me in the direction? I promise I will write it down and never bother anybody about it again.

It wasn't a YouTube, although he may have links to YouTube sites. In his text descriptions of horns, he used the word "faff" a couple of times, like: "I don't like to faff around with that stuff." And, he played a YTS-23 for 30 years, because he CHOSE to. He had LOTS of admiration for the YTS-23 as a players horn. Thanks for all your input ... I'll post it if i ever stumble across it again. I found it very informative.
