While the player is the important component, psychological lifts given by
beautifying the instrument (such as gold keys and even diamonds inlaid in
the bell) as well as manicured hands, adds a great lift to one's playing.
It's like eating a hot dog or a filet de sole Lafayette avec une sauce de
Creme fraische.
