  1. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I'm looking around for a bari. Of course the best place to look is local because who wants to ship a bari? I found a Conn 12M freshly overhauled near me with really nice pictures - even pictures of the restoration process which the seller did himself. Looks like good work, but of course hard to...
  2. 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...

    The guy claims its the "final version of the conn 12m" but it has modern keywork, and modern keyguards. https://www.ebay.com/itm/254550245867

    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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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!
  8. Conn
    Hi, I recently picked up a low A Conn, sold as a 1969 11m, with a serial # I can't figure out. It's 4236301V. I understand the "V" is likely for a factory 2nd, but cannot determine where the 7 digit number comes from. What I assume was 11m has been scratched out and assuming it is a 2nd, I get...
  9. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I was scanning all of my paper docs, trying to downsize, and came across my appraisal and receipts for my MKVI Bb Bari. This got me thinking as I am thinking about selling off some of the heard:( Emilio sold me the Bari and overhauled it. It has always had a (not unpleasant) "Old spice"...
  10. Reeds
    Hi Everybody, My son, who generally plays tenor was asked to play bari this year by his jazz band director. Fortunately they have a school instrument that plays apparely very well and with a metal mouthpiece for him to use. But now we're stumped in finding an appropriate reed to buy. My...

    I just acquired a vintage Bari mouthpiece with no markings on it. Hard Rubber with that vintage smell. To me it smells more like a good Indian curry rather than sulfur like that is so often described. Big open chamber. Very large outside diameter, a Rovner ligature that fits a Selmer S80 is...

    Ive been playing a Rico Metalite M7 with Rico Royal 2 reeds for a while now and from the get-go I have been quite unhappy with the tone of my playing, I've saved up about £180 ($230) for a new mpc and I'm going to look into a new reed choice as well (I have more money available if needed). I'm...

    I recently got a metal yanagisawa mouthpiece and love it, but I’m interested in a ligature that may work better than the stock lig. Any recommendations?
  14. Eb Baritone
    Bought the above a week or so ago and had it serviced by a respected technician. My instructor can play it but I have a terrible time getting notes above middle G-- i.e., when the sax 'pipe' is short, I get very poor results, sometimes just a weak tone, no tone, or a lot of squeaking. I can...
  15. Eb Baritone
    Announcing a consortium for a new 3-movement sonata for baritone saxophone and piano! I've been writing a lot for saxophone the past four years and have heard time and time again that there's not enough rep for bari, so I'm trying to do my part to remedy that. Duration: 12-15 minutes Fee: $50...
  16. Eb Baritone
    Hi to everyone! I've got a Conn Bari #180xxx Low Pitch, in excellent shape. It plays well with a big sound but... it's really out of tune on some notes, especially from high G to C. There's no suitable position for the mp (I have a Gottsu HS8), it goes too far and drops down. The previous owner...

    So, my new baby (10 year old YBS_52) is stuffy, top to bottom, and much less free blowing. Got frustrated today to the point that I went back to the college horn for the remainder of my practice.... Same mouthpiece and tried 4 reeds before swapping horns (the college's YBS-52 of similar age...

    Hi, i'm 23 and i'm getting everyday more interested in the magic sound of saxophones, especially the baritone :3 is it ok to start from it? i think i'll rent one and find a teacher to understand if it's the right thing for me. Anybody started from the bari? Let me know :)

    Hi all, I'm coming up blank for neck piece options for my circa 1975-85 Bundy. It seems that one needs the actual thing. All the shops I've called have no clue, except I've been told a Buescher won't be the right intonation. Online there's only one I've seen for roughly $400 USD - correct me...
