TenorSaxe: I disagree. The argument about what affects a horn and what doesn't goes on and on and the myth is perpetuated by posts like yours. It has been debated extensivley here on SOTW. Relacquering can not be proven to alter a horn's sound.

What IS true is that relacquering is frowned upon in the general marketplace and thus, the resale value of the instrument is diminshed.

Many relacquered saxophones have been done before a current buyer possessed it - hardly the fault of the owner. Mattaw (Mathew) didn't say whether or not he had it done, only that it was relacquered.

My best playing soprano has a coat of after-market lacquer on it - nothing I did, but it is still there. No problem for me - or the horn. DAVE
