  1. Clarinet
    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. King (HN White)
    I would like to buy a Bari sax. I did some research on Craigslist and found someone selling a king Bari sax for $1000. Would any of you recommend me buying it? Also I contacted the seller and he told me I could play test it before buying it.
  3. Bb Soprano
    Hello! This is my first post on this website. So I recently bought an Allora AASS-301 Student Soprano Saxophone for $375 USD and just received it yesterday. Right from opening it, seemed a little odd how the case was somewhat dirty with water stains. Also the Allora logo on the hard case was...
  4. Alto mpc
    Hi, I have been playing sax for 3 years. I think now is a good time for me to upgrade my setup. I will be purchasing new sax, and would like new gear to match it. The sax I will likely get is a YANY A901. In the mpc setup, I would like a dark sound, a bit darker, but just as jazzy as Eric...
  5. Baritone mpc
    Hey SOTW I began on bari playing a s80 c* which, i never tuned my setup on baritone, but it seemed to be working fine, i don't know if i could do better. this was for classical and jazz, and it was all my school had. I suck on a s80 c* alto, but have no problems on baritone, for alto, i use a...
  6. Tenor mpc
    There are mouthpieces that sell new at around the $20 range, for example Bari Esprit or Rico B5. Are these as crap as the price would lead you to expect? Are any of them worth trying? Does anyone here play such a mouthpiece as one of their primaries?

    Hey everyone I'm new here, and registered after reading a bunch of the forum posts and discussions here! Anyways, I have a few questions that could use some clarification! I'm currently in High School Band, Jazz Band, and Marching Band. In all three of these, I play Alto Saxophone - When I'm...
  8. Bb Soprano
    Right now I have a curved cecilio soprano (one of the ones set up by bruce bailey) I love it and it's suprisingly in tune and I've even played it in public before a few times. The thing is, it's not the most free blowing instrument, and the tone is not as good as some other sopranos I've played...
  9. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hey all, Please don't flame me if this has been asked before. I've been considering trying out a cheap metal mouthpiece that I saw on ebay. It looks like a Chinese (Huastar) copy of a Selmer...
  10. Bb Tenor
    I've seen a decent amount of forum posts lately talking about how its not too difficult to find a Mk VI tenor in good condition for about 5 grand. The thing is, I'm still in high school, and though I don't have the commitment or desire to play professionally, sax is definately not something that...
  11. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    So I'm brand new to this forum and I'm glad I signed up, because I'm lost. I'm looking around for a new tenor sax and the only ones I seem to be able to find are the OPUS USA models. I'm looking for a relatively cheap sax (anywhere from $400-$1500) and a step above beginner (not professional)...
  12. Bb Soprano
    I'm looking to buy a cheap but okay quality straight soprano sax. I can't go and buy a $3000 yani because I'm 14 and my parents are done spending money on instruments after I got a pro tenor. Ive been researching a lot and I've found that the Venus sopranos are good quality and sound great for...
  13. Bb Soprano
    Hi I'm interested in playing soprano sax after seeing Brandford Marsalis play live a few months ago. I started of playing alto I got pretty good and then went to a proffessional Yamaha tenor with a hard rubber Jody Jazz mouthpiece and it sounds great. I'm only 14 so I don't have much money and...

  15. 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...
  16. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Lazarro Black/Gold Soprano Saxophone I'm writing this review because before I bought my Lazarro - there were hardly any good reviews of this unknown and probably Asian brand. Ok let's be honest to begin with - the standard rule of thumb is "you get what you pay for". And even though that is...
