    I’ve seen this mouthpiece listed in eBay for a while, an unbranded plastic C-Melody piece sold by Mouthpiece Planet. I never bought it because I couldn’t find any decent information about it. the last time I walked away from it on eBay, the system apparently blabbed to the Seller that I had...
  2. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hello! I've been lurking a while, and finally signed up so I could lurk some more... while trying to decide what make sax to start on. So this is kind of an introduction for me as well. I already play clarinet - not a genius or anything - I play for fun - and want to start learning the...

    I have the opportunity to buy a Buescher True Tone C-melody sn 94xxx (1921), low pitch, for around 730 US$. The condition of the horn is great, with new pads. The finish is silver. Is this a fair price? Thank you for your help! -Trygve
  4. Selmer (Paris)
    Check out our good friend and P. Mauriat saxophone artist, James Carter, shredding on both a 1957 Selmer Mark VI c-melody saxophone (one of only 5 known to have been made) and a WWII era Selmer Balanced Action c-melody saxophone (one of only 4 known to have been made). James's performance...
  5. Selmer (Paris)
    Hello Everyone, I was browsing a salles website when I found this sax. The owner says it is in C and that is Selmer, but I'm not convinced it is a Selmer C-Melody, maybe a High Pitch Selmer Tenor? Can any of you shed some light on this? Thanks
  6. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    I liked the thread(s) of Jacob, But I've seen a recent climb in C-melody players and intrest so I was wondering what people play on C-melody and what is their all time favourite... Tell me: If you had to go the rest of your days with ONE mouthpiece on C-mel. And only one, what would it be...
  7. Conn
    I'm probably picking up this old Conn C-Melody from an acquaintance. Help me check my research before I buy, please!! The asking price is $150 (plus the $60 in gas it'll cost me to get there and back). Totalled, I'd be in it for $210. Not sure how much work is needed, but it appears to have...
  8. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I've come into possession of a Wurlitzer American (Martin stencil) C-Mel that's in basically solid condition, but lots of rust and crud, and I'm assuming useless pads.

  10. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    I just got my new Aquila C Metalpro Widebody mouthpiece last night. I've only played it a little, but I can offer a couple of observations. (And bear in mind that I'm still very mich a beginner, limited skills and a limited range of other sax and mouthpiece experience.) Right out of the box...

    Hi! I have looked at some threads about cleaning mouthpieces but I have found none that talked about a C-melody Buescher True Tone.

  14. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    My tenor MP is too large for the C-Mel neck cork. Currently have teflon tape wrapped to make up the missing diameter. What's the best way to keep it on? Alternatively, should I re-cork and if so, what thickness cork? (3/32" and sand down to fit?) Thanks, SteveM
