    Hi, I'm a High School musician who currently plays Saxophone(bari, tenor, alto, and sop), flute and bass clarinet. I'm currently trying to get my hands on a VERY cheap Bb soprano clarinet. since it would just be for screwing around at home, I was wondering if it would be smarter just get a...
  2. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Hi! So, there isn't a lot of information around on Thomann horns so I thought I'd let you know a little about the ones I own. If anyone is searching to find out about them. I have been playing sax for 7 months so I am no expert but I have been a musician for 15 years on other instruments. The...
  3. Multi Sax!
    Hey all, I'm currently trying to decide whether to save up for professional alto or to purchase a student level tenor. Here's some background info; I currently play as 1st chair in my high school band with my YAS-23. I have been playing since the 4th grade. After about 7 years of playing, I...
  4. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I am a saxophonist surrounded by a daunting world of old timers or new players who love their Jupiters, their Yamahas and Yanagisawas, their Selmers and expensive brands. To me with my Chinese low range Gear4Music alto, it seems like a lot of people think that you can only buy the best. I have...
  5. What to Buy & Why: Saxophones
    I'm a teen who has been playing alto sax for 4 and 1/2 years, (taking Grade 6 this year) and I would like to try soprano alongside. After having tried my teacher's pro Yani straight soprano I've decided that I love the tone, but I found it difficult to handle as a straight instrument. I did have...
  6. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hi guys, Haven't played my alto for about 3 years and upon re-kindling my love for jazz recently, I felt compelled to go get my sax which I used to play constantly up until a few years ago. My house I moved into has a really bad problem with damp and I saw my case had a bit of mould, got the...

    Hi, I'm a relatively new player (6 years) and am moving onto playing in college this coming fall. Since I'm going onto college, I've been searching for months for information about a good soprano to replace my chinese-made one from eBay. I'm a longtime SotW lurker, but never needed to post...
  8. Bb Tenor
    Hey guys, summer is coming around and the school won't let me take the YTS-62 they have home, so I'm looking to pick up a decent tenor for around or under a thousand US dollars. I play a conn chu berry alto and a later 12m baritone, so a conn would be cool, but I'm by all means open to...

    Hello SOTWers I've had a '59 (803XXX) Conn Shooting Star since the 5th grade. Played through high shool, did concert band, jazz band, marching band, etc. but stopped when I went to college. Am now in grad school and have picked up the horn again and about 2 years into playing with a fun group...
  11. Baritone mpc
    I've been doing some research and had lots of fun with the "search" function, but I'd like some more input from some pros with more bari experience than I have. Soon I'm going to need to get my own bari mouthpiece; the axe I'll most likely be playing is an old Conn that belongs to a friend, but...
