  1. Eb Baritone
    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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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.
  8. 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...
  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. Baritone mpc
    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...
  13. Eb Baritone
    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...
  14. Yanagisawa
    Hello, I am being offered (long distance) a Yani Bari for around $1,600 which looks in principle a good deal. However, I have not been able to establish the exact model of the instrument and ultimately if it is indeed a good price and how old is the instrument. I have found contradictory...
  15. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi all! I am writing this post on behalf of one of my local tech, who has acquired an old/antique baritone saxophone made by Gautrot, one of the contemporaries of Adolf Sax. He is looking for an identification or more information about the instrument if someone happens to know these. He is also...

  17. Malerne
    I'm thinking of buying this bari, engraved "Linton Elkhart", which is being offered for sale locally. I know Linton made Malerne stencils until the mid-70s and then Orsi stencils, and my impression is the former have a better reputation than the latter, but I don't know which kind this horn is...
  18. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I came across a Baritone Sax with the engraving "Golden Vox". I have never heard this and have no clue who the manufacturer is. It needs some fix before it's ready to play and I'm just wondering if it's worth buying and fixing?

    Looking for recommendations for flight cases for a baritone... sadly she's got to have a trip in the hold so recommendations gratefully received (Yanagisawa B992 if that's of any relevance). Cheers! Edit: I'm based in the UK so ideally something available here.. BAM seems like the most...
  20. Selmer (Paris)
    I'm going to look at a relaquered 1954 SBA bari for a possible purchase later today. I've read up on these things as best as I can, both here and elsewhere, but have no personal experience with either Selmers or baritones. Any advice or suggestions as to what to look for or to avoid...
