  1. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I believe in safety before all else. Which is why I thought I'd ask this collective the best way to disinfect a saxophone for sale during and after the Covid -19 restrictions. I believe it's crazy to buy a horn without playing it, but it's also not worth risking your life. My current way is...
