    I cast an unequivocal vote for the Selmer 404. Having played on Florida, current STM, Francois Louis, and even Winslow ligatures, I find the 404 both the easiest to deal with and the best sounding...

    What about in Cedar Rapids?...

    Series III neck on SBA?

    Has anyone played a Selmer Series III neck on his/her SBA tenor? Would it throw off the intonation significantly? How about the focus?

    My SBA neck is on the fritz.
