  1. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    (Mods, please move this if it isn't in the right section. Maybe it belongs in the "straps" category or something.) Yesterday afternoon I listened to Kamasi Washington's album "The Epic" and felt quite ashamed of my skills, so I determined it was time to practice. Threw the reed in a jar of...

    The horn took a spill in the living room - it hit the floor on the butt end of the rod connected to the right hand pinky keys.

    Well, on a recent x-mas morning, i got an amazing Jodyjazz Classic 6 mouthpiece for my alto sax.
