So….I spent the morning on the train to Manchester. Its only about fifty clicks, so a good half hour each way. I went into ” Johnny Roadhouse ” music, with the intention of buying the Yamaha 52 tenorsax. I really didn’t like it, they wanted me to pay for a case, as they didn’t have one. Since Johnny Sr passed away, the place is a shadow of its former self. I used to ask J Sr, was ” Roadhouse ” his real name. He always answered yes, but I’m not so sure…lol !! Anyhow, next to the Yamaha there was the ” Jupiter ” model I am playing. Jupiter….800 pounds, Yamaha, 900 pounds….no case. It proved a point. My ” Arta Guban ” tenor has been overhauled, and Al is dropping it off this week coming. A curious Romanian tenorsax, but a chunk of brass. Heavy in weight, heavy in sound. I’m in a kind of odd situation. I have a certain amount of cash, but need a bargain. There is a London session player, Aldevis Tibaldi. I know he has a Dolnet, he’s been trying to sell for a while. I’m gonna mail him and then take the advice of a good friend. ” let the horn find you !! “…..now that makes sense !!
I didn’t come back empty handed, so I’m gonna switch to the mpc section…..you coming ??
