A sax player from Korea, all you need to do just click on 300K. how you think his tone?

http://www.crezio.com/music/special/jazz/5.html

We don't understand what they're talking but doesn't matter. I like this guy's tone, bright but not too sharp. Also, not much juice on mixing.

He is using a very old Selmer Mark VI, but what MP & ligature it is? Can't see very clear.

Does any Koean sax player look at this forum? Can yo give us some information about this sax player?

They are talking about jazz concert they have in some city in Korea. I was not interested in Sax when I was in Koread. So I am not aware of this guy.

Pretty good player. Sounds like a Link to me. Maybe a Link clone, like a Barone.

I can produce a similar tone on a setup that I like: '47 Balanced Action with a Selmer C* and La Voz reeds.

I think it's a beechler bellite.

Yes, you are right Mike. I took a very close look at it and it sure is a Beechler Bellite. Besides, his tone is very similar to Everette Harp's. Everette plays a Beechler Bellite #8 mpc.

Tim,

I think almost all pro sax player are using Selmer Mark VI in Korea, right? I've watch at least 3 to 4 different player in that site, all Mark VI.
