  1. Tenor mpc
    Well I finally have the time to sit down and review this piece as I promised I would. Seeing that Phil was closing down his metal mouthpiece line, I decided to get one fast because this guy has some deep level knowledge on acoustics and mouthpiece design. A Barone mouthpiece is always...
  2. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Gentlemen of SOTW, I recently purchased my new Barone Classic Tenor a few months ago as a back up horn for gigging. When I first got the horn i noticed that it played incredibly out of tune, on the order of 30-40c sharp The only way to remedy that it was to either pull the mouthpiece out so far...

    I would value your opinions on good (under $300) hard rubber mouthpieces suitable for playing bari in a big band? Since I started playing with a big band a couple of months ago, I have been playing on my classical setup, but I really need to get a more appropriate mouthpiece for this band to...

    Hey SOTW, thought I'd take an opportunity to make my first post by reviewing my new Barone classic tenor. This is just an initial impressions review, I'll probably post another one after taking it to a few shows and seeing what it's worth as a professional horn. Aesthetic: 7/10 I opted for the...

    I've heard good things about these horns but sometimes it's hard to tell if a horn is considered a great horn because of how cheap it is or if it would be considered a great horn regardless of price. What are your opinions on this in regards to Barone horns?
  6. Tenor mpc
    So I'm trying to decide on a new mouthpiece and wanted some input. I've made a very extensive list of possibilities (see below). Basically I'm looking for input. The "Rules": 1) You must have played on at least two of these pieces beyond simply testing the out for a few minutes. 2) DISREGARD...

    Just took delivery of a Barone Vintage Alto in Satin Lacquer about a week ago. (Background- I teach public school band during the day and play sax semi-profesionally with 3 groups in the Chicago area when not paying with my kids) I have primarily played on a 1960 Mark VI alto (serial 88,XXX) for...
  8. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I've been searching around recently to find a professional saxophone cheaper than the big four. I've come across a few, but I need some opinions from people that have played them. I know lots of people on SOTW have been raving about the Phil Barone Saxophones. I'd really like to get one of these...

    hi folks.... I have a Tenor Buffet Super Dynaction without neck. I´ve tried some (LA, yana, yamaha).. but the sound is not good.. mainly in terms of intonation. The yamaha neck performed well.... So I read some articles of Barone neck on SDA... and I decided to try. So, if you have a barone...
  10. Tenor mpc
    Hey everyone, I recently got a Barone Hollywood 8 in a trade, and its sounding pretty good. I love the low register and the middle register on it. When I get higher, like above A2, it gets really shrill and easy to get out of tune, it feels like there is so little resistance up there, and it...
  11. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Hey All, As the topic of this post clearly states this is a comparison between The Cannonball Stone Series Bari and the Phil Barone Classic Bari. Please only post if you have played both baris and compare and contrast advantages and disadvantages between the two. Please stick to the topic of the...

    Can anyone give me a description of the sound they get from a barone bari and compare it to other manufacturers? Thanks!

    Hi all Firstly, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has contributed to make this forum such an invaluable resource! I am interested in getting back into playing the saxophone after about an 8 year break (since leaving high school). Up until that point I had played for about 6 years...

    I used to play all Selmer Mark VI in the 1970's and 1980's. I played flute for 30 years, and only just decided to get back into saxophone. After a lot of reading and a lot of trepidation I ordered the Barone Vintage Tenor in Vintage Gold. Then I bought a Classic Alto, also in Vintage Gold. I...
  19. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    If you've read some of my previous posts you know I've been an enthusiastic TK Melody owner for almost a year now. I love my tenor and alto as much as ever, and I now have several students and friends that feel the same way about theirs. Last week I was asked by Perkins Music here in Maine to...
  20. Barone
    After a lot of emailing with Phil Barone, and a ton of helpful communication with Barone owners on the forum, I took the plunge on a Vintage Tenor a few weeks ago. What I got was a great sounding sax that is pretty well set-up right out of the box as far as intonation goes through the full...
