Itís a Selmer AS42B. Itís a intermediate/entry level pro horn. Heís doesnít practice enough for me to splurge on a French Selmer, so this one will do. Itís a joint project between the Henri Selmer Paris division and the US division. The horn is US designed(Taiwan made I believe) but the neck and mouthpiece are both Selmer Paris made in uhhhhÖ.Paris I guess. Lol
He is trying for first alto this coming year.
I donít have a great ear for music, but I was surprised how much cleaner the notes were with this compared to his older step-up Yamaha he was playing prior.

Thats a beauty!

Giving up playing the Saxophone in Highschool is my biggest regret. I played from 5th grade till mid freshmen year, and was pretty damn good, but was more interested in "having fun/partying" than waking up at 5:30am for Jazz Band. Foolish child.

You can always pick it back up you will never forget how to play.

Getting a teenager out of bed at that time is hard, itís the same at our house.

His school Jazz band were asked to play at the Vancouver international jazz festival last week, and they crushed it. The best they sounded all year in my opinion.

Having a quality instrument is so important for budding musicians. When I was young I had a really cheap guitar. Hard to fret strings and barre chords impossible. Gave it up (well worked like a dog for years) and at 50 went and bought a quality guitar and started again. Then another. Well, now I'm at about 13-14 guitars. You kid will look back with gratitude for this when he is older.

Almost finished installing MoCA adapters in some of the rooms in the house. All my coax cables were outside the house, so I installed this box and adapter. So far the MoCA adapters are delivering pretty decent speed. I still have an electrician coming out to give me an estimate on CAT6 drops, but for now this seems to be working. I still haven't set up Ethernet backhaul with them, so that'll be the real test. But the Apple TVs are pulling down the max speed my cable internet delivers, so no complaints.

BMW 2002 alloys with tires. These are the factory reproductions sold by BMW and produced by FPS for BMW around 2002 and now out of production. I'm hoping to use them on my '64 BMW 700 Convertible—after I wear the rubber off them on my 1600 Cabriolet!

Just the beginning after a hit and run that damaged the rear bumper and right rear tire. The good news is the price went up by $100 after I bought it. Next will be an MTech bumper to replace the damaged base model. Why couldn't they have hit the front? I would have preferred doing the front first.

Tudor Black Bay GMT. I have been looking for a nice GMT to add, but itís been difficult since most jewelers/watch seller have very little stock.

Just buying the parts needed to get the car back to normal, I thought an MTech would be a nice upgrade. Next, I will be getting it painted and then installing it.

Needed something better than my Bauer one from Harbor Freight. Wife has a long list of outdoor projects that she wants me to complete so I thought I would treat myself for all of the hard work coming my way! lol

I previously had an Orbi whole home mesh system and it worked great....until a firmware update they released bricked one of the satellites. When I say brick, I mean it rendered it useless - couldn't factory reset, couldn't tftp into it to restore working firmware, etc.

Then I went online and discovered I wasn't alone, hundreds encountered a similar experience including my friend and their tech support is awful (free for only 90 days, then you have to pay).

I briefly tried the eero mesh from Amazon, and it started off badly; just to install the app on my iPhone (which is required in order to set up the system) it forced a password change of my Amazon account. Then once I got it connected to the modem and it broadcast a WiFi SSID, NONE of the Amazon Ring cameras could connect to it - their support couldn't figure it out either. Instant return.

I've heard good things about the Linksys so hopefully a good replacement. Thanks for the update on your experience.
