  1. Alto mpc
    Hello, I’ve recently bought a metal piece for my alto at my local store here in munich, germany. The guy is a repairman and he not only sells and fixes instruments but also happens to have over 200mpc for various saxophones and clarinets. I’m pretty sure it’s a Lebayle piece bc of the “L”...
  2. Eb Alto
    I am getting a brand new unlaquered saxophone, I want to keep it looking relatively nice as it develops a patina but I do not want to use anything that will damage it. I was planning on using a microfiber cloth I have at home (the kind you would use to clean a car) but I wanted to make sure it...
  3. Martin
    Hi, I'm new here and have been enjoying reading some of the posts and it sounds like there are some very knowledgable people here. I've got my brother's alto saxophone from when he played in school. It's a 1926 Martin Handcraft, silver. It's been sitting for years. I got it and decided I...
  4. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    I've only been playing for a week, but I'm having trouble getting a consistent high tone out of my octave key, and some times it just straight up doesn't work. In order to get it to work I have to bite a bit on the reed, which I don't think I should have to do. By biting on the reed and...
  5. Alto mpc
    There are a few people out there making high quality Link-inspired mouthpieces for tenor, but I was curious about what the demand for alto Links were. I know that Meyers are much more popular for alto, but I've seen and heard some players getting some fantastic sounds out of some of the older...
  6. Tips and Techniques
    I've been playing a V16 A9 mouthpiece for a few weeks and it's giving me the big bright sound I need as a lead alto, but I've been riding a little sharp on it, even when I'm pulled out as far as I can go without it falling off. What is the best way to resolve the tuning issue? Is there some way...
  7. High School and College
    Hi, I'm a junior in high school and I tried out for jazz ensemble in sophomore year but two people better than me had already had those spots pretty much "reserved" since they were older and better than me. I filled in for a winter concert where I had to practice 6 days a week to catch up with...
  8. Alto mpc
    Hi All, So I've played in a few big bands in the past and have either used a Meyer (6M I think?) and a Beechler Diamond s6s. For the past year, however, I've developed and stuck to a brighter and more edgy tone as I have been seriously involved with a fusion/funk band. I am currently very...

  10. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    I have a Brilhart Tonalin Great Neck New York 3 (.07) Alto. and I love it. It is very easy to play and I like the color I can get from it. However, in terms of projection I feel as if it is holding me back. I am aware that I can do things on my end as a player to project more, but it is a...
  11. Cases
    I've had a lot of experience traveling with my instruments, but it's been awhile since I needed both my alto and tenor on road gigs. I need a case in which I can check my alto, because there is no way that I'm checking my Mark VI tenor....ever. In the past, I checked my alto in a Walt Johnson...
  12. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I need help choosing which reed is best for an alto saxophone marching band solo! I want to be able to sound loud and good. I’m getting mixed signals from google and I know y’all will have an accurate and good answer for me. I’m preferably looking towards any vandoren reed. Thank you so much.
