Friso paid a visit to Melissa during the sound check for her concert at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam, in order to have her try the prototype of his new Free Wind tenor saxophone. After the sound check, Melissa was so impressed that she insisted that she wants to be involved in the further development of the instrument. Nonetheless, she did fall in love with the neck that Friso had made the day before; on her own 45.xxx serial number Selmer SBA, the neck sounded so good that she decided to buy it immediately.

"I found my dream neck, thank you Friso. I love it so much!!"
