    I am assuming you meant that you resent the alto sax back to Phil Barone, for him to repair it. Have you called him? He posts his phone number in his posts here.

    No I didn't resend the sax, I sent it to his repair man, the repair person said it was bad and sent it to Phil, Phil then sold it to another party and hasn't replaced it or refunded my $$ I have tried to make contact, nothing.....

    Why is this posted in "History"?

    Seems like there is more to this story. How do you know he sold it? What was wrong with the horn? Was the horn resold as new or as damaged? Is the delay due to waiting for a horn the same as yours to be made?

    You need to talk to Phil.

    Hmmmmm . . . one day after two "dirty laundry" threads from Mike Crouch were pulled, you join up and post this as your first communication on the forum?

    I just read the alt.music.sax thread that Gary provided a link for in another thread. Please don't tell me it's now starting here.

    Frankly, calling or emailing the business I had a problem with would be my first course of action, not joining an internet forum to ask a bunch of strangers about it. If this is a legitimate complaint you have, please call Phil up right now and discuss the matter with him. I'm sure he'll provide an explanation and take care of it for you. He really is a stand-up guy.

    Dammit now you've made me go to alt.music.sax, is there any way I can cleanse my mind of that stuff?

    Also, don't google image search "phil barone"...

    I noticed that the new member doesn't have an "about me"" tab in his public profile section also.
    Are we being . . . saxgourmed ?

    Since he's new to the forum, I'm not sure how he got involved with Phil to begin with, but I sent the new member Phil's phone number, since Phil's signature line was not appearing. We'll see . . .

    Sherlock Holmes's nemesis was Professor Moriarty . . .

    I guess I'm suspicious by nature, but the screen name -- first initital plus last name, all lower case letters, no punctuation -- is similar in style to another person's screen name we've seen recently.

    Uh - does Phil only reside within these walls?

    Regarding the signature format, that's hardly a unique form.

    Exclamation Re: alto saxaphone problems

    If the new OP is sincere (I see we all have some suspicions where this is concerned), I'd advise you to go through the proper channels to attempt to resolve this offline before airing it here.
