Greetings, O Fonts of Wisdom!
I have a couple of Conn altos with the double-socket neck design (6M, 26M, 28M). Cleaning the tenon (the part on the body of the sax) is easy enough, but what's the best way to clean the joint area on the neck?
The 6M was designed for big band and jazz play. It's great! But how does yours sound for concert/symphonic band or occasional classical-like solos? I've tried multiple mpc, reed and lig. setup combinations, even a "double embouchure", and don't get close enough to my perceived "liquid gold"...
. . . is ready to come home from the saxophone spa! She has had a good long respite and a complete cleaning and re-padding. I'll try to post some photos soon. She will be accessorized with an M.C. Gregory mouthpiece.
