The latest addition – a bare-brass King C
Just a test to see if I can post directly from the Google Chrome browser. I often come across interesting content for the blog when surfing, but the quite tedious path of manipulating it into a post – via a suitable editor, like Windows LiveWriter, or Firefox ScribeFire – means that it gets added to a never ending ‘to-do’ list.
If I can ‘do it now’ with a simple ‘click’, it’s a useful double-whammy ! I’ll leave you with a picture of my latest toy, a King bare-brass C-Melody sax, arrived a few days ago – and what a beast, it’ll give my Martin C a run for it’s money – but they are two slightly different animals, I’d hate to have to chose between them !! It’s called ‘BB King’ (naturally, thanks for the suggestion Lewis) and plays far better than it looks, this vendors picture doesn’t do it justice – but then, it’s grabbed direct from the ebay page as a test of the ‘instant post mechanism’, Aaaahhhh…
And it works ! Prepare for many more (regular) posts, if the’re all this easy !
PS - I know, how many saxophones can a person play, but you don’t often see King C’s in bare-brass, it’s a beaut ! (maybe this will spur me on to sort out a few of my own projects, including Big Ugly, a King stencil, coincidentally also in bare-brass – http://csax.net/saxophones/gallery/big-ugly.htm )
Do I detect a ‘King’ theme emerging ?
