  1. New Product & Dealer Announcements
    Hello All, I recently finished what turned out to be a really fantastic 3 years of working with Kim Bock at KB Saxophone Services in NYC where I had the opportunity to get neck deep in all things saxophone. I was able to sit right in front of many of my favorite players and hear them A/B...
  2. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    Hey everyone. I wanted to make this thread to showcase recordings of other instruments we all play. I want to keep this to non-woodwind "doubles" if you will. They are fine, but if you want to put up recordings of clarinet/flute/whatever create a thread on that and it'll get going! This one...
  3. Electronic Equipment
    Hi there, Does anybody know the libraries for Kontakt that can be used with digital wind instruments, such as AKAI EWI or Yamaha WX11? Of course, I tried different libraries, "Kirk Hunter Studios Concert Brass", "Andante Brass", "Embertone trumpet". I found them good enough in quality. But the...
  4. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    For the second time now I've forgotten that my mouthpiece and reed are set up on my horn and left for a couple hours to return to a reed with some green discolouring. It's a newly refaced brass link so I'm thinking rather than it being mold it may be coming from Copper Oxide (the like that...

  6. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    I found many threads that gave me partial answers about metal alloys in Link mouthpieces, but I would like to know in general. Background is that I would like to buy a 50s Double Ring that looks like all the plating including the layer of rhodium has come off. I have an allergy towards nickel...
  7. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Recently bought an 'Elk Hart' Buescher for a very decent price. It was described as "There is some tarnish and oxidation." Well it was not tarnish, nor oxidation.....the horn is either painted or has sort of home applied lacquer. I could have returned the horn, but the action feels really good...
  8. Misc. Instruments and Voice
    It used to be that synthesizers did not really do a great job trying to sound like a Trumpet, Trombone, or French Horn. That has all changed with the software synthesizer breakthroughs from samplemodeling. Their stuff is light years ahead of what you had from Roland, Yamaha, and others. Not...
  9. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Is there anyone that knows the notes to "Move on Up" by Curtis Mayfield? I have loved this song for years now and just thought about playing it and I can't seem to fish out the notes on my own. Any help or advice on learning the piece would be good, thanks.
