Vintage would be a SBA baritone(love the engraving). modern would be a Keilwerrth shadow baritone. If I hit the lottery I would buy a Selmer or Keilwerth Bass!!!

It would have to be a killer SBA, if I was only allowed one. The others, which require less money but still more than I can swing right now:
Buescher Aristocrat
Conn 10M
Selmer Ref 36 Flamingo (new)
Not necessarily in that order.

I am sensing a common thread here.... :D

Straight/Curved Sopranos: 165-175k Conn Artist model, gold plate, full pearls, full engraving
Alto: 245k Conn gold plated transitional model with the swivel thumbrest, fully engraved + pearls on all keys
Tenor: 260-265k Conn Connqueror in gold plate, fully engraved
Bari: 230k-240k 12M transitional in gold plate, fully engraved
Clarinet: Buffet R13 with gold plated keywork + matching bass clarinet
Flute: Haynes 1928 solid silver closed hole B foot

I forgot to add that Chu Jerry would have overhauled them all in his new mansion the work paid for.

Any decent buescher or martin but the most important thing is to have a decent band that knows the correct speed and rhythm for you

One that:

1. Doesn't go out of adjustment on a monthly basis.
2. Optimizes the ergonomics of the feel and keywork/action to it's fullest potential.
3. Is in tune throughout the range without wrangling, and doesn't sacrifice tone for intonation.
4. Is mouthpiece friendly with all possible setups.
5. Has the sound that so many golden oldies had 60 or 70 years ago.
6. Is built to last and keep the above attributes without constant tweaking.

In other words it hasn't been made yet.

My dream is to be Candy Dulfer's sax.

Mindi Abair is waaay sexier than Candy Dulfer come on now. I'd love to be Mindi Abair's Saxophone! But I'd be alot of repeated notes since she only uses the pentatonic scale but hey!

Ultimately it would be a Selmer Reference 36 tenor--or the original model it was based on. Right now, however, it's the Keilwerth Bundy Special tenor I'm expecting in the mail any day now!!!!

I'd also love to get an alto to match my Martin Dick Stabile tenor someday!

Rory

ps. Can you say Stencil lover!

If it's a dream, why must we settle for just one?

JK CX90 tenor
Matched alto/tenor pair of cherry Big B's
NOS SDA Bari to low A
JK SX90 Bass in silver plate

Because, in our dreams, we would be free of GAS and dedicate ourselves to playing a single instrument very well.
