    Hello everybody, I am searching for an Buffet Crampon copper baritonesax (S3). Does anybody saw one or does anybody of you sell one ? Grt from Germany Julian
  2. Polls and Surveys
    This survey is mostly about buying brand-new baritone saxophones, but there's a "Used" option as well for comparative purposes. You can select up to three choices, if you've actually bought three baritone saxes in the last 10 years. Feel free to add more details in the comments.

    I have aspirations to own a silver plated one. I’m waiting to hear more about them and see people play And try to play one myself. Obviously, save some money for one too! Any comments on them? I was looking at a Selmer 80 SA II Jubilee too but the 1 year warranty kind of rubs me the wrong way vs...
  4. Kessler Saxophones
    I finally jumped aboard the bari sax train last week when Kessler had a little sale on the Solist model. The price has now risen by $220 back to its customary level (still a great deal), so I'm pleased I acted when I did. I've now received the sax, but haven't played it yet, so this post will be...

    Looks like the YBS-82 is finally being released and shipped out after a long delay (thanks COVID.) Am I the only person insane enough to even attempt to buy one of these? I sold my YBS-52 about a year and a half ago to get some money and I plan on finishing my performance degree either this...

    Hi . . . I acquired a Buescher True-Tone Baritone Sax a couple years ago. It is serial number 215778 and tagged a 'Low Pitch' horn. Trying to determine its year of manufacture and potential value. It's in pretty great shape, so I'm guessing it may have been refinished a number of years ago...
  7. Martin
    Anyone know whether it's a star or a cross on Martin's Magnas? I googled to the best of my abilities but came up with diddley. Also, do the baritone necks have it or do people just add them?

    I just received a Buescher Big B baritone in the mail. Unfortunately I am unable to actually play test the thing because Weiner Music still hasn't shipped my order of mouthpieces after 5 business days... So I'm trying to determine what sort of condition it's in and whether it got knocked around...

    I'm probably about to pull the trigger on a Buescher Big B baritone. Unfortunately I'm buying online and haven't played it or any horn like it. I'm getting a little worried about the vintage bari "pickle barrel" mouthpiece intonation issues I've been reading about here, where old baris only play...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...

    Hi, I've been playing for 1 year on a Berg Larsen 110 2 sms mouthpiece on my baritone sax and I really love its sound and power (mostly played in brass band, rock ,funk). But there is a problem: I always break my reed after one or two hours of play. I use Vandoren red cut 3, I tryed 3 1/2 but...

    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

    hi folks - can anyone make a guess as to the ID on this old baritone / bass mouthpiece? I've no need for it, as I've sold both my baritones.
  15. Reeds
    Hi everyone, I'm interested in purchasing a Fiberreed Carbon for my Jody Jazz DVNY 9 bari mouthpiece. It's a monster of a mouthpiece so I'm aiming for a softer reed but I'm not sure exactly which strength to go with. I play a Legere Signature 2.5 on my Jody Jazz Jet 7 which I have been having...
  16. 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...

    Hello! I just discovered Bob Gordom's playing, and I'm in love with his sound. I'm wondering if anyone knows what he was using. All the pictures I can find show him using a white mouthpiece that looks like maybe a Runyon, but I'd be interested to know its size, etc., or if that's not a...

    I've just bought a Selmer Super Sax baritone (1930) in very good shape; with it came a Berg 100 2 SMS 'piece that really looks more like plastic than HR - did Berg use this material or is just very smooth HR? It has the milled finish and a bullet chamber... Any advice appreciated!

    Hi, SOTW! I've been revising my hardware a little, have sold some stuff out of the accumulated collection, and am looking for some recommendations. For my baritone, I'm playing a well worn Conn 12M saxophone. Mouthpieces I have and like: Otto Link Tone Edge (hard rubber) 7. Guy Hawkins...

    Hi friends! I'm on the hunt for bari duets for more advanced players. Two that I'm familiar with and have played are "Black" by Marc Mellits and "Knee Gas (ON)" by Ryan Brown. Both are bass clarinet duet transcriptions but they work well on bari. What other duets (original or transcribed) are...
