    ... ahh, you're just in remission.
    My wife, whose ears I trust, said that my sound is much fuller, richer, more powerful and resonant on this set up.
    ... but really folks... my wife said, " It sounds like a saxophone ".

    don´t be negative.


    And you know what??? I got it for 10 EUR!!!!!!! Can you imagine????
    Yes. That´s interessant. Somth God is trying to tell you?

    I have been making this experience too. That´s a risk when we have money to buy or credit (as in USA).

    Somebody told ,Happiness can be calculated with mathematics.

    How much happy you are or not?

    Take the number of your wishes and divide it for the number of your reached/bought wishes. The result should be in best case always 1 so that´s a balance between what you wish and what you achieve.

    People that wish too much things are often unhappy because it´s improbable to get all.
    Rich people (Jacko was, and much others are) who can buy everything are almost empty.
    In a research has been determined that the resident people of a small island in the pacific, without Internet and other modern comforts are the happiest human beings on planet earth.
    They had but an appeal...

    "Don´t tell it to the world. We wanna to stay alone here"

    I am reducing my sax collection. Another day I sold a keilwerth RTH Tenor and spent the 1000 Bucks from the sale.

    A kind of remission. Sharing the wealth with others. and making place for a nice new CE Winds Omega Tenor.

    Buy what you want but be generous to the poor. and that all within your budget

    I didn't have a real case of GAS until I joined this forum. Damn! Does anybody know of any treatments for it?

    Rx:
    repeat this four times a day until symptoms pass

    "If you don't get everthing you want,

    think of all the things you don't get

    that you don't want"

    My treatment came from a golf analogy...

    "don't buy a new putter every year to improve your putting...buy a nice putter that won't restrict you and then learn how to putt."

    My case of GAS got a nice bump today when I decided to start practicing my flute everyday after a long layoff. I like to keep instruments that I'm practicing daily out on a stand. I tried to use my alto/clar/flute stand with just the flute peg, but it doesn't work unless the entire stand is assembled. So that means I have to (get to) buy a flute stand!!!

    GAS, you are my ruler, my divine inspiration... I bow down to you.

    Whenever I'm tempted to buy a mouthpiece, I remind myself that the problem is not my current mouthpiece, it's the player. Then I buy some different reeds. I now have enough different reeds that I can go to back to brands I rejected and tossed in the drawer years ago, and find out they work fine.
