 I've got the gimmes
Author: BethGraham

Hi, gang --

I've been taking lessons since January, using my mom's 1950-ish Selmer Bundy Resonite and a Fobes Debut mouthpiece. I'm making what my teacher thinks is excellent progress and have recently joined two New Horizons bands (concert and beginner).

My teacher suspects that my trusty steed "isn't doing me any favors" (that is, it may make it harder than it needs to be to play fluidly). However, I recognize that as a relative beginner it's probably best to keep playing on the Bundy for a while longer.

That said, I've got my eye on the Backun Protege for when I do upgrade. (I'm a proud new Canadian.) And I'm wondering if it might make sense to at least upgrade my barrel to maybe a Fatboy in the near term. It might improve my sound and make me more content to continue playing the Bundy.

What think you? Is there any merit in a barrel upgrade, or have I just come down with a bad case of the gimmes?
