Re: WTB: Alto (not Chinese)

Budget? Not too high. I have some ideas about some mods I might undertake...but we'll see. I'm either looking for a deal on a horn someone has no more use for or a bit of a beat-up one that I can cut up a little bit. Doesn't have to be pristine.

Hi there,

I'm interested in an alto case. If you have one for sale, let me know. Thanks.

I may also be interested in a double case (tenor/alto).

WTB: Alto (not Chinese)

Hey there folks, I am looking into more options for an alto. I currently have a JP Rath, and it's a GREAT alto (for what I use it for, anyway). Now I'm looking for another one to compare, preferably with a valve. I'm not too specific at this point. I have some stuff I'd be interested in trading. Jus...

My quick advice - take some time off, especially from the horn. Try freebuzzing (buzzing without a mouthpiece) and see how that feels. It'll help you get stronger while not applying mechanical force/leverage to the damaged area.

I'm on the ball and will totally be on top of everything, so don't be alarmed. Friday night seems like a good time to do it.

Thanks for your understanding.
