  1. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    just got a new bari and the neck receiver acts like a tuning slide that hasn't been oiled in a decade. should i use slide oil or cork grease or something on the neck end or inside the bari?

  3. Eb Baritone
    I'd like to build a setup so I could add a sub-octave on bari. Ideally, I would use a mic on the horn going through an octave pedal (probably with preamp) but would send only the sub octave to a separate bass amp. Has anyone tried this, or has anyone found a better way to do it? The hard part...

    Hello All Woodwind Greats! Question today is: what type of sax do you have and play predominantly? Is it an alto, tenor, bari, soprano? Or do you have multiple? Would you expand on your choice? Let us know the reason for your choice. There is no right or wrong answer. It is your...

    Just thought I'd create a thread here for this, in case anyone was interested in this piece. I've seen a lot about the new three SYOS originals on Alto and Tenor, but not really anything on Bari. Disclaimer: I purchased this piece on my own with my own money, so any bias in here is just because...

    Hi all, I'm a huge fan of the lighter blue box of Rigotti Gold bari reeds, but they don't seem to be available anywhere for the past 2 years. Just to clarify, I mean the filed ones without "Jazz" on the box as in this image (they are indeed filed, contrary to the box art) Does anyone know if...
  7. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hey all, happy to be back. I recently acquired a very old YBS-52 (dated before Yamaha took their serial numbers down, according to a Yamaha person I emailed) and it required a LOT of TLC. I'm currently working on it, but in my scrubbing I accidentally took off what was left of the Purple label...
  8. Manufacturing/ Construction
    Hello All I came accross a Selmer MK VI on fleabay some days ago with a modification that I personally have never seen before, not that I have seen many saxophones in my short existence. This example had a Low A like on a Bari. Why don't we have these on current new every day models in this...
  9. Dolnet
    I picked up a Dolnet Low A Bel Air bari in nickel plate with serial number 66xxx from the charity estate auction of a local musician in a national touring band. I once spent part of an evening geeking out with him about his horn collection and am very happy that I won one of the saxes. I also...
  10. Eb Baritone
    Contrary to my username, I play bari sax. I started after making this account. Anyway, I’m 5’1 (5’3 in my good boots) and I’m going to march bari. I ordered a Neo tech sling that goes over my shoulder, I think that’s going to help. I’m going to be the only Bari marching, and we’re going to a...
  11. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello. I have a minuscule leak on the high F on my bari. However, due to its location on the neck, it affects about 2/3 of the notes I play. I don't have a car and dread having to carry that huge thing in the crowded subway + stairs. Is there a way to safely bend it or adjust it so it seals...
  12. Ligatures
    Hi all, I just got moved to Bari in my school's jazz band (collegiate level, but an all-come group). I am sharing the bari with a couple of players in other bands on campus, but we each have our own mouthpiece. Problem is, my mouthpiece doesn't have a ligature and the ligature that is being...

    I've got a Brilhart which appears to be like new - it says "Designed by Arnold Brilhart" and looks like a Level Air, but does not say "Level Air." The SN is 933x. What model might this be? At 4* it's probably not valuable, but I'd like to know. Thanks!
