  1. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    A Tale of 2 Necks & 1 Yamaha 82Z tenor G1 vs V1 I made a video comparing the stock G1 model neck on this black lacquer 82Z tenor with a solid silver V1 neck. I think the silver neck has a more refined tone and it actually feels better to play on to me. It seems to have slightly more resistance...

    82Z Tenor owners, what case do you recommend for daily use? Although the original case is good quality, it's a bit unwieldy for me for transport along with other music gear. I like the popular Protec backpackable case for its pockets for stand, pocket for music, light weight, and backpackable...

    Long story short...my student's mother told me their repairman recommended some expensive repairs. She asked me to play her son's lacquered 82Z tenor to see if the repairman's recommendation was legitimate. I played the horn. Not only did it not need repairs...but it felt and sounded a lot...

    I have ordered 82zs tenor, but they sent me 875exs tenor... Panic... I am living in South Korea and have been waiting over a week for this horn. I know 875exs is more expansive, but I really don't need it. Even I can not resell it in here. Nobody seeks this model in my country. Now I should...

    Ok, so first off, I hope I put this into the right place. If not, move it. All right, right now I'm extremely pissed at Music and Arts. Ok, so first off, I buy a nice black lacquered 82z alto off its website. (Which I need right now for a performance in some weeks) I put on next day shipping...

    I keep reading that the 82z is a jazz horn and that the EX is the classical horn. Is there any validity to this or is it just how they are marketed?? I play both classical and jazz and so I need a horn that can do both. I was on the market for an 82Z lacker model but I've also read that the 62II...
