  1. 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...
  2. 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...

    have a nice weekend to all !
  4. 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...
  5. 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?
  6. Cases
    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...
  7. 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...
  8. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi, I want to buy a good (with good sound and also intonation) baritone but with low Bb. Any advice besides a Mark VI? Thanks in advance!
  9. Eb Baritone
    Has anyone ever owned (or played for a considerable amount of time) a "Purple Logo" Yamaha bari? I am not willing to sacrifice quality for a few hundred dollars difference in price. I now play several times a week, year round. Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
  10. Sax & Music Stands
    Alright chums, The reason for this thread is this stand. they make it for alto and tenor, but not bari. This type of stand fits in the bell (!) and is locked in place by a single large screw mechanism. Truly brilliant - for alto and tenor. I have been a bari main all my teenage and adult...
  11. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Back posting after a bit of a break from the forums! (college has been crazy). A few of my friends and I have been working for the past year or so on putting a saxophone quartet together as we dabbled with it a little bit casually in high school. Well, we've gotten everything together now except...
  12. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    Hey guys! I am looking for some help getting my overtones under control. Basically I can consistently hit high F# but whatever fingering I try for high G or above comes out as a squeal. I don't exactly know what I'm doing wrong and it's very frustrating. I've hit G once but it was very...
  13. Conn
    Hi everyone- I recently acquired a Conn 12M Bari with a serial number that dates it to 1958/9. I got it from a seller on Reverb. The sound is amazing, but I find that compared to my H Couf Superba Ii Bari, the keywork is very heavy and the 12M is much heavier. I had read that adjusting to...
  14. Eb Baritone
    Hello, I have the opportunity to buy a YBS-61 in excellent condition for 2.2 K. I will be trying it in couple of days and I would like to determine if this model has potentially the incorrect factory placement of the keys that created problems with 2nd G , G Sharp sound. The sax is a Low A...
  15. Baritone mpc
    Hi All - I have a H Couf Superba I bari (Keilwerth) and I've recently started playing in a local community band. I've tried a few mouthpieces, but none seem to be the right one. 1. Yamaha 5C - sounds ok in middle register, but lower notes are harder to get out and higher notes don't sound...
  16. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi Everyone - I'm always scouting for a good bari and this one caught my eye. At the risk of losing it to someone :-), I'm looking for advice on this one...I love the sound of the Conn 12M and the 11M, but they are harder to find and usually priced higher. Would this be a good horn based on its...
  17. Evette & Schaeffer Buffet-Crampon, S.A.
    Hi fellow sax-players. Long-time browser, first-time poster here. I've been looking for a used bari for quite some time and one finally came in yesterday to my local music store here in the DC area. I gave it a spin in the store and found it good enough for the price ($1195). Blows easily...
  18. Baritone mpc
    I recently came into possession of a beuscher aristocrat for around £1400 GBP, including a mouthpiece and a large selection of reeds. The sax needs some work but I am confused about the mouthpiece. It was sold to me as a Berg Larsen but it is so old that all the markings and identifying labels...

    This is a video that a friend of mine shot at my last gig...sorry for the videocamera angle, but he captured the sound decently. I've been playing this silver conn 12m for 2 years. The more I play it the more I love it! Bye, Fabrizio
  20. Buescher
    Hi everyone, I have a Buescher baritone saxophone that I bought quite a while back. I liked how it played, and wasn't overly concerned with what I was purchasing at the time. Now, I am a bit more interested and would like to figure out exactly what it is that I have. Its serial number is...
