hey greg

Last time I saw Selim, in summer 2006, he did in fact have an Amati, but he wasn't happy with it. I know he's since bought something else, but don't know what. I'll ask my friend over there who's his student.

I had an Amati, and liked it much better than my crappy metal one I bought on my first trip to Istanbul, but it wasn't a fantastic instrument. It had some serious intonation issues, and a honky, raspy tone, no matter what mouthpiece & reed I used on it.
