  1. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hello reader, Lately, I've been realizing that my sound is a bit too bright for my liking. I currently play on a Jody Jazz HR 6M*, Vandoren Java Red 3's, Francois Louis Ultimate lig, and a YAS 62 horn. I'd like to aim for something a bit darker but still edgy enough to cut through a big band. I...
  2. Eb Alto
    Hello reader! I currently play on a Jody Jazz HR 6M alto piece and I feel that it is too dark for me. Unfortunately, the piece does not produce the sound I am searching for. I am aiming toward a David Sanborn tone; bright, raspy, and "edgy," and I've found two mouthpieces that seem to fit the...

    I play a 1960 Buescher Aristocrat Mark III Bari Saxophone (a low Bb to high F if it matters), use an Otto Link mouthpiece, and am about to finish off my pack of reeds, which are Van Doren Java 3's.

    Right now I play on an Otto Link STM 7 on tenor, usually with green Java 3's. I play all different styles of music, with jazz being the primary. Occasionally, however, I find that I am unable to produce enough edge or cut to play certain modern styles. I would like to brighten my tone a little...
  8. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    I'm in High School and I've been trying to make my tone brighter than my usual sound, which is naturally very dark according to many of my peers. I even got a Jumbo Java A45 to brighten my tone. I don't know if it's just me, but for some reason, I can't seem to get a bright tone, even on the...

  11. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hi Everyone, I love the sax solo in "Gunner's Dream" by Pink Floyd on the album "The Final Cut". I've been dying to learn how to play it but I've never really tried to get a rock tone. I'm assuming my set up isn't bad. I've got an Unlacquered P. Mauriat, an Otto Link New York 7 (which might...
