Which reminds me to finally get my Yanagisawa soprano sax overhauled this year, I had a Selmer until 1993 which then got stolen, the Japanese substitute served me well ever since but now it definitely is showing it's age.
One of our former grad students just got a Selmer he loves and brought me his Cannonball Big Bell, 10 yrs old max and mechanically the keywork is far superior to any of my other horns. The best part is that it sounds like me, I played a half a dozen sopranos last spring and only one sort of sounded like me... Now I need to get my 1938 balanced action alto overhauled, it's a gem that deserves some love again.

Happy New Year Simon!
