Got to play a Summit One last night!

Posted on August 7, 2014 at 9:52am 0 Comments

My friend and mentor Gary Greenfelder let me play his new Summit One last night at our rehearsal and it is everything people have said. So easy to play, big fat lows and just a sweet sounding horn. I tried to sneak it in my bag but Gary saw me and made me give it back. :(

Starting my saving plan so when I have improved enough to be worthy of owning one I will be ready to have Jason build one for me.
