On the bench this evening... a set of LX's receiving their patina finish. The colours coming out in the brasses are natural, no lacquers or filters.

9 out of 10 Jazz Cats preferred HANSON saxes!

Five Yanagisawas, four Selmers, three Yamahas, two TJ's, a Cannonball and a Dave Guardalla all part exchanged in favour of a HANSON saxophone recently.

It’s been a good day in the workshop.... right up until the moment the bottom broke from a gold plating glass tube and emptied the 24karat gold solution over the floor.

Oh well, time for a beer and no use crying over spilt milk.... 😳. #volumeofacylinder #goldplating

School orchestras replace wind instruments with ukuleles as they adapt to post-Covid rules

Oh gosh. Just so long as the children aren’t taught to play chords and SING (!) all will be well.

School music directors say they are bringing in new instruments for junior players ahead of the planned full reopening of schools next month
