Over the years I’ve received hundreds of emails about C-Melody saxophones, some from genuinely interested owner/players, and an awful lot from people just looking to identify/value/repair/sell ones they’ve recently acquired or been handed down in the family. I do, in all honesty, try to reply to most of them (usually in some detail, on an individual level, and trying to avoid the ‘standard’ quick reply) – but it’s getting to be a very time consuming task, pleasurable tho’ it usually is, and a few emails do regrettably fall ‘between the cracks’ as the inbox starts creaking again.
To anyone still waiting for a response, I do sincerely apologise – try resending the email, you may be luckier this time 🙂 Of course I often point people to the website Q&A – and other online resources. Useful then to find this ebay guide to C-melody Saxophones, written by rdkeeney, obviously a C enthusiast.
It’s amazing how very much the same information in one article, but presented in a slightly different way to others, can often seem to answer the same old questions more concisely… Thanks for that, rdkeeney, could it be that we’ve met before, on some distant forum, maybe under different names ?
