    John - just looking at your list of instruments, to keep them warm requires a practice schedule of several hours a day!

    Quite right you are, Dean!! The tuba sits most of the time (brass quintet/ensemble 2 or 3 times a year), but both trombones get used for two different year round symphony orchestras, and the Adams E3 mostly for the two concert bands. I do play the Wessex on occasion, and the B&H Imperial is currently at Lee Stofer's in Iowa getting put into sort of like new condition (was already pretty darn nice, just a few things to make it even nicer). Don't expect to see it until forever, but maybe not quite that long.

    I spend about 80% of my time on the Adam E3. I suffer from instrumentitis, an incurable disease caused by not knowing when to employ any kind of sense about limiting the number of instruments one owns.

    By the way, my list of instruments is not all inclusive. Add to that a Yamaha Disklavier, a Taylor 912e guitar, a Kala ukulele (to satisfy my nagging urge to move to Hawaii, which we once almost did), a couple of nice recorders, a harmonica, a pBone trombone (useful various times of the year), and maybe more, that is all I can think of at the moment.

    But I like the quandary of figuring out how to spend time with all of my instruments.

    Dean, you too, seem to have a handful of instruments as well. Life is good!!
