    Sounds like you need a bari? or a 'nino? or a c-mel? Nothing gets GAS rolling again like a new baby!

    And yeah, the thread died and was resurrected. But fine, the discussion is amusing.

    I suggest the new Saxoflatulant Category VI. It'll blow you away.

    Very true IMO. The player and mouthpiece have so much more to do with shaping the sound than any saxophone.

    Now that can't be argued with.

    Seriously though, in 7th grade, consider the parental pocket and look for a recent intermediate level horn like a Yamaha YTS-52 or something similar. There's much to discover in High School and saxophone may not be a life-long experience for you, as it is for many of the old fogies on this web site.
