as requested: I played baritone saxophone for 12 years (all thru primary education) but gave it up since I didn't own one and they are expensive as **** (around $4000 for a good one)! I really liked our jazz band's bass player, he was awesome. I also really like bass sound in general (hence baritone sax ) so I started bass guitar. That was about 2.5 years ago, and I'm still going strong! I just need a band to play in now!
