hembergler, nice collection! That Steinway must've cost a hell of a lot of money! My parents were considering the Model A (6') and Model B (6' 10") in Ebony lacquer. A Model A in special wood such as yours cost as much as an Ebony Model B. The sums of money we're talking about here is well over $60k Nice harpsichord too!

Hembergler, oh how I envy you. Seriously...a Steinway would make me forget headphones existed (most of the time).

I'd like to learn all these instruments O_O (aside from piano, my forte...sorry for the terrible pun). "All" I have is a Yamaha P-90 and a Hobart M. Cable upright (it was my mom's old piano, and needs to be tuned badly as well as needing a new spring for one of the keys...I guess they can only take ~20k repetitions before failing ), but the Yamaha sounds/feels pretty nice. I also have 2 $10 soprano recorders! Ah, junior high music program, how you tormented us all...

I thought recorders were for 3rd grade... I know that's when I got mine. Yes... I was the master of Mary-Had-A-Little-Lamb

Hehe...yeah, I'm not quite sure why I still have them. They sound great in the right hands, but those hands are definitely rare (compared to just about every other instrument--I bet more people play the glockenspiel ). I think the thing everyone played was "Irish Washerwoman..." The music program wasn't very popular at my junior high, needless to say.

Yeah, that definitely is a magnificent saxophone, Jbucla2005!

Nothing special, just an Ibanez GSR 190 with Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings. I only got it maybe 3 months ago as a learnin' bass.

Here's a REAL ancient "under the bed" instrument - My 1920's Curved Soprano Sax by King ("HN White Co." back then) - obviously I can't take pics since it's in Delaware, but it looks like this one...




read up if you like on it here - http://www.saxpics.com/king/king.htm

No idea the worth, but it's going to my kid someday for sure!

Here's my baby rockin' out. A 1986 Peter Prier.

More to come....

Well there's my trusty POS Vito clarinet...and I'm not putting a picture of that here. If it was my old trusty Buffet E45 that would be a different story.

Then there's the Fender we had to sell during a very lean month. I sucked at guitar, but there's just not going to be any replacing that character..



But my main instrument is my voice, and I'm not posting pictures of my vocal chords. It cost nothing, and when I was working on a rep, it was an Italian rep, some English, but not much. My voice isn't heavy enough for the big huge German stuff.

oh plainsong that's a shame you had to sell your Strat (which i notice is a REAL strat!) the first strat i fell in love with looked just like that!
post #43 of 597
It was an 87 Japanese strat, and it was sweet. It really brought out what little talent I had. When I sold it I made a huge profit simply by selling it back to the place where I'd bought it. Fenders and guitars in general have gotten crazy expensive locally. You can pay 1000 USD on a new strat made in Mexico. Gibsons usually start at about 1500 USD or so. A few years ago, it wasn't like that.

in my mind, japanese strats from the 80s are the real deal. sadly, many of them have far better build quality than the ones made in the USA in the 80s.

Here is a couple of my guitars:

my main axe: Ibanez Jem 7DBK



and probably the best sounding classical I have ever played, got it from my uncle...they sure don't make em' like they used to: Goya GG-10
