  1. Re: May be seeing Maceo at Yoshi's SF - 8pm or 10pm show?

    There are two Yoshi's, one in SF and one in Oakland.
  2. Re: May be seeing Maceo at Yoshi's SF - 8pm or 10pm show?

    Thanks, guys, that's kind of what I expected to hear. But hope springs eternal, you know?
  3. May be seeing Maceo at Yoshi's SF - 8pm or 10pm show?

    Having never been to a show at Yoshi's, I'm wondering whether there's a particular advantage to going to the later show - a hipper crowd, maybe, or (please, please) at least the chance of a longer...

    Re: Should I consider doubling on Clarinet.

    I can't believe that no one has commented on the OP's transposing piano in B. I find it quite amusing to imagine the look on the piano tuner's face when he realized that everything was a semitone...

    Re: Looking For Comment: PB Silver Vintage Alto

    I have the classic model in silver plate, so I think I can put any concerns about care of the finish to rest. It is definitely lacquered over the plate, and looks great. There are none of the...

    Re: Mouthpiece preference with the Vintage Alto

    I assume that the Vandoren Java to which you refer in the last sentence is the mouthpiece, not the reed. But you might consider picking up some Java reeds (green box) if you can find them, as they...

    Re: Even tone, note to note

    I know that there has already been some discussion of this comment, but I just want to say amen to that, JL. I find these timbral differences pretty dead handy. I don't have perfect pitch, but if I...
  8. Re: My Barone Experience,... hope it adds something to this room's mix

    What's the difficulty with the mouthpiece? Is he just unable to play it with the same reeds he's using on his 4C? If that's the case, then it's no big shocker -- the tip on Phil's piece is going to...

    Re: Vibratosax

    You're probably right, but if this horn could survive it, it would be one for the history books. I truly, sincerely, do not mean to minimize, mock, or otherwise disrespect the spirit of experiment...

    Re: Vibratosax

    Better still, these things are cheap enough that we should have a pass-around :) Perhaps that's a bit glib, but it's a thought.

    Re: Electric guitar player appreciation thread

    I looked around and couldn't find a schematic for this guitar, but if you can find one, it will probably indicate that there's a lot going on in there electronically. My best guess would be that...

    Re: What is that bar on my NEW Vintage alto ?

    And Stephen's own article that he referred to in his initial post on the subject (hammer action) concerns a soprano. Combined with his own stress-tests of key metal of various makes, I think...

    Re: Confused, does Barone = Mac8?

    And the case that he's offering with the horn probably isn't worth as much as the one that Phil includes, on top of all of that. Phil's current cases are hard-sided shaped cases reminiscent of a BAM...
  15. Re: Type of Finish Recommended for Classic Alto?

    I have a Vintage Tenor in that finish, and I am also Phil's web guy. We changed the name of the finish from simply "Gold Lacquer" to "Honey Gold Lacquer" to better distinguish from the darker...
  16. Re: SOTW TOTM for November 2010 "There Will Never be Another You"

    Then your chief export would be what? Comedians? I mean, I love Bret and Jemaine, but I'm not sure they can support an entire economy. Maybe they'll make some more hobbit movies :)

    Re: My new big band CD is out.

    It must have to do with the asymmetry of the driver's position relative to the speakers in a car... of course they drive on the right in most of Europe, just like in the US. It's what, UK, Japan,...

    Lots of great versions here. This is my first TOTM, so be gentle.

  20. Re: Sonny Rollins & Leonard Cohen-BEYOND CATEGORY !!!

    Wow, Tim, thanks for posting that. I had no idea that anything like this existed. Sonny and Leonard have both moved me deeply in concert, and it's a real treat to see them together.
