Years ago My biggest regret was selling a Metal Florda Link Bari MPC. Should never of done it!!! Thought I could find better - never did. Too Late now.

What have you regretted selling?

Sometimes I regret selling my SS Berg 105/3. Even if I had it though, I wouldn't be playing it with any regularity. It had qualities I haven't quite been able to find in other mpc's. My Barone T/C comes close enough though.

I let go a Leblanc (Paris) System tenor sax, bought in 1968. I was too immature to understand what a fine horn it was; I felt short-changed because a band director (who likely got a kickback on the deal) talked me into it instead of a Mark VI. And yet it was a superb instrument. I wish I still had it.

Not sax-related, but I sold an old Hofner Club 40 electric guitar for £30 to buy a wedding ring. Worth hundreds now. It's a shame, but wouldn't my wife look silly with a guitar hanging from her finger?

My regrets...

A 1920's silver plated Martin Bass Sax sold for - $250
A 1960's low A 'DABICO' Baritone Sax sold for - $ 100
A 1950's Martin 'The Martin' Tenor Sax sold for - $ 250
A 1960's Buffet / Evette Clarinet sold for - $ 125

Also, I was once persuaded to 'trade' to a mouthpiece dealer, 2 vintage Otto Link Tenor Sax mouthpieces (one was a 'Master Link' - the other a very old 'Tonemaster') to get two 'modern' mouthpieces (a metal Berg and a Brilhart) that I did not like once I got them.

Oops...

I've lost track, but probably the B&S Medusa, Yam 82Z, and Yani 992 altos would be high on this list.

I have plenty of regrets
I have sold and traded 3 ny usa meyer altos .(not that I liked them that much but the value skyrocketed on them after I sold them)sold a blue jumbo java a45 that was a real player and never could find another that played just like it . I still look for them ...
bd dukoff 1945 brass tenor 5* that played like butter.shouldnt have let that one get away .it was mint .also had a the martin alto that was mint. my mom sold it when i was at college mistakenly thought that was the horn i was trying to sell. the horn she was supposed to sell was a student reynolds tenor . she felt bad and I never made a fuss about that .sale price was 160.00 .also I screwed up when I sold a king super 20 tenor 411*** that played like a cannon .that time I needed the money so I kind of had to sell but I wish I had that one back . Im happy with the gear I have and truthfully sound about the same with any horn or mouthpiece but I still wish I had these items back .

I haven't sold much equipment. But I regret selling my troubadour I could of spent a lot more time on it then I did, and it had the power but I wanted instant gratification. Shame.
1932 Martin Handcraft Troubadour can't remember the serial number. But I sold it and got a clarinet and it helped me get my Yani. Its tough, but I would like to buy one after college.
And you guys told me I would regret it, I hate it when your right.:shock: :shock:
