Sorry to say this, but bass isn't actually my primary instrument. Don't get me wrong, I love playing bass as much as the next guy on this forum. However, I'm much more proficient with a saxophone in my hands. Alto and bari are where I'm at home. I guess I'm just used to playing Eb woodwinds. Oh boy, are there GAS conflictions... Right now I want a G&L ASAT bass a TON. But 'need' overules 'want' every time, and I 'need' a new alto! My current sax just isnt cutting it anymore, so I'm shelling out the dough for a brand spankin' new Yanagisawa A991. The ASAT has to go on hold for a while. One day I'll need a bari of my own as well, (I play a loaner) and those things are not easy on the wallet! Thats probably 2 more basses I wont be able to buy right there... What other instruments does everyone else play? What kinds of conflictions do you have between them?
