    Im one of the unfortunate ones to have a saxophone with Lance since sept 2009. I sent him my Buescher big B tenor for the complete mods for $500 which i thought was more than reasonable
    and now I regret sending it to him as i am unsure whether i will get it within the next 5 years the way he is going. I think Lance has bitten off more than he can chew and is swamped and if he has to manufacture each part
    for each individual sax then Im afraid when I think of all the horns he has of customers that it will be 5 years. He always promises to send photos tomorrow and they never come. I did receive one about a year ago. But what really annoys the hell
    out of me is that he emails me and tells me of some finish he is working on with one of his own horns when he should be working on ours. Anyway he seems a nice enough guy but I sure hope he gets stuck in and gets some flying
    out the door soon before someone really spits the dummy.

    Hi Mike,

    I'm having a ball being back on SOTW. There is so much catching up to do.

    I'm writing about a link problem that has me baffled. When I add a link to my posts such as this one:

    http://jbtsaxmusic.homestead.com/Benade-classnotes.pdf

    either by using the link button or by just cutting and pasting into the text of the post, it does not go to my page.
    Instead it is diverted to an ad for Homestead at this address: http://www.homestead.com/?s_cid=LINKSHARE

    When I put the first link into my browser bar, it comes up fine. When I add that link to a post in the Woodwind Forum, it comes up fine. It is only when I try to put a link to that page (and other's) at jbtsaxmusic.homestead.com/ ....... in a post on SOTW that it is diverted to the ad page. Can you help me with what it will take to fix this? Thanks.

    Hey, I am taking it slow , I am somewhat of a novice. I am at the point on the Conn where I am checking tone hole levelness and timing as well as ensuring cups are centered over tone hole as well(could see some bad fit on this front on old pads).I was just fit checking the bell c# is that one of the rods you refer to as having not enough support?Seems like the upper post could have been further down the body?Curious where are adjustment points you mentioned I would use Ultra suede?I thought that the key height adjustments would be accomplished by adjusting feet height?Do you fix your horn's?Also what pads would you use to get a dark mellow Conn sound?
    '

    Some fun stuff to share with you,I met Helen from Bassic sax. We live close and I made a trip to her place and got a chance to play 10 of her horns.Most memorable the Buescher Bass what an animal!!Honorable mention goes to her Mk 6 Baritone-Screamer.

    Thanks-o"saxman'
