A little too hard for me...

I didn't catch there were two different kinds of saxophones.

Ugh, why do people feel the need to post "first" on all the new teasers. It drives me crazy.

Good logic-grid, though. Like the creativity.

this one took me some time to figure out but i got it and i did not need the hint. it was still hard though, but that's what makes it fun. imagine a world with no challenges. A world with no challenges = BORING! I liked it. good job. ;)

Thanks again for the clever puzzles, I don't rate them as "hard" because for me, that entails having to figure more than one scenario in order to rule something out. I prefer this kind, challenging and very clever ( for instance, clue 1 rules out all but the piano) but not so hard it becomes work, which takes some of the fun out for me. Please keep them coming! Very enjoyable and much appreciated!

This was a very enjoyable logic grid, I really liked the way the clues and how some were obvious but others made you think...great teaser, keep them coming!

#7 was unnecessary for me

A good one, but I thought clue 7 was a bit sneaky, not being a musician, saxophones are actually "woodwind" instruments, even though they are made of brass ... according to Wikipedia anyway.
