If you could have any horn what would it be? For me it would be a tie between a Selmer Mark VI Sopranino or an older Conn Bass Saxophone.

I'll take a Mark VI tenor, serial number in the 50k-60k, mint condition... sell it for $20,000.00, then buy myself a Yangisawa curved soprano in silver, have Rampone custom-make me a curved soprano in copper, buy one of the new Liebman Keilwerth sopranos, throw in two or three good mouthpieces, and keep the change...

I'd just stop there. ;)

I really like the Keilwerth SX90 that I own. I have wanted one for a really long time and I finally got one.

Although I just played a killer SBA that I would love to have.

My dream horn would probably be a Keilwerth Shadow Tenor or Nickel Silver Tenor -- because I already have a 82Z with all the fixins -- (silver, roos, metal resos, G3). I am really not curious about much else.

Since I already have a Mark VI and Magna, mine would be a full pearl satin gold plated Chu virtuoso curved soprano.

I don't know.... and I am still looking. I do like the novelty of a Buescher Straight Alto and I am not (yet) willing to part with $100K for a conn-o-sax.

A Selmer Modele 26 C Melody with low A, or a Vito C Melody, or an artist deluxe Conn New Wonder C Melody....

And: An original C Bass sax

Just to have: A very early Buescher TH&C tenor in either original shiny silver or gold plate.

To play: A solid Mark VI made in 1965 or before that had been completely rebuilt by a truly great tech with black roopads. Finish would likely be bare brass that has never been mechanically buffed, but that I would keep hand polished time to time.

Wow SBA Tenor. Bet that blows like a dream.

Hmm my dream horn would be a full pearled, silver bell/neck King Silversonic Alto OR (for some crazy reason) a mint Grafton. I wouldn't take it nowhere but just to blow a few notes on one would be fun.
