  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    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
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. Baritone mpc
    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!
  9. 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...
  10. 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"...
  11. 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...
  12. Baritone mpc
    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...
  13. Baritone mpc
    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...
