Lots of discussion here about the Vikings, the Barones, the Mauriats, but next to nothing about MacSax. And yes, I did run a search... -- and I also read Steve Neff's review of the alto and a couple of others elsewhere on the interwebz.
I am thinking of treating myself to another tenor at some point, maybe even this year still. (Do I need another tenor? Uhm, well, one can never really have too many tenors, right? Right....?) I will be in Dallas for a few days in April, and then in Austin in January, so hopefully I'll get to try a MacSax tenor somewhere, but I'd be most curious to learn if anyone here has any first-hand experience, especially techs?
I was lucky to catch Delfeayo Marsalis's Uptown Jazz Orchestra in the Crescent City last year and got to talk briefly to his tenor player, Roderick Palmer [sp?], who seemed very happy indeed with his MacSax. And is a monster player by the way!
Any experiences or impressions anyone cares to share are greatly appreciated, thanks!
