Another Trip to the MIM (Musical Instruments Museum)

A couple of months ago, I went to the MIM (Musical Instruments Museum) in Scottsdale (the post’s right here). Well, they had an event on 07/29/2012 where teachers could get in free, provided they listened to a sales pitch regarding taking their kids to the MIM on a field trip. My wife’s a teacher and asked me to tag along, so I did.

We were only there for about 1.5 hours this time. I did, however, bring my wife’s camera and tried to take a few more pics. They had a few upgrades to their sax collection, too: a Grafton Acrylic Alto and a couple more Mark VIs. Pictures below with some pithy commentary on some.

As with my first post, if you want bigger pics, e-mail me ( and they’re yours. Each original is appx. 3MB @ 4288×2848 pixels. All I ask is that you credit me for taking them and link back here, please.
