I thought You had a Borgani?
It’s been a while since I had only one Borgani. Three was the correct number for a long while, but then I found another and another. Kinda like puppies showing up on the doorstep... What’s not to love?

A Buffet Crampon Evette Schaeffer straight soprano with a modified Apogee system.
A 1950 silverplated Selmer SBA alto engraved by Jaice Dumars
A Buffet R13 clarinet
A Conn 10M with original pads that still plays great.
A YBS 61 low A bari that is in line for a complete overhaul.

The first three were pawnshop "rescues". I bought the closet 10M from the repair manager in the shop where I worked for a good price. The bari I picked up from another sax repair tech for $1000.

That’s a nice little litter you have amassed.

This seems like a very good post for Thanksgiving. Instead of lusting after new gear, we should be thankful for what we have and make the very most out of it. If we really love it, spend the time with it, and want to make it happen, we can make great music with modest gear!

That being said, I'm lucky to own some gems. My only two saxophones at the moment are....

Guardala (B&S) alto
Yamaha 82z tenor

But I'm fortunate to own a ton of other great gear.

Leblanc Concerto clarinet
Evans flute of some sort
"Fresher Straighter" electric guitar (a Japanese "Lawsuit" era clone of a Fender Stratocaster, frigging great instrument I got for $300 in Albuquerque)
Godin LG electric guitar (another fantastic instrument that I got for like $200 from Zoo Music, RIP, in Dallas)
Martin small body acoustic guitar from 1968 (it was my dad's, it's amazing)
Fender Jaguar electric bass (made in Japan, like most of my favorite instruments)
Roland Juno DI keyboard (the gig workstation, cheap and effective)
Yamaha P-85 digital grand piano (best practice keyboard/MIDI controller ever, feels like a real Yamaha grand)
M-Audio Axiom Pro MIDI controller (a great gift from a friend in New York, perfect for producing in-the-box synth stuff)
A million pedals (figuratively)
A million plugins (figuratively)
A few microphones

MUCH more than I need to go make some music. I am a fortunate person, and very thankful!
