  1. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hi Folks, I have recently acquired a 1936 conn 10m tenor saxophone that has supposedly been "refurbished" but has what appear to me to be 3 damaged rolled tone holes. My instinct is to run fast in the opposite direction, having heard horror stories of rolled tone holes that have been filed...
  2. Tenor mpc
    I bought this 3-digit Guardala MB II and the guy who sold it only just told me the damage you see in the baffle is a hole that goes "through the roof". He said he fixed the bite plate with the original pink dental resin. The bite plate in fact looked original to me from the pics, so I was misled...
  3. Jupiter
    Hello all, My son's middle school recently purchased a brand new Jupiter Bari Sax. It came with what appeared to be a heavy duty neck strap with a hard plastic clasp. My son had just finished a concert this past Thursday and was walking from the performance with the Bari on it's strap around...

    This is to all the techs, (or everyone in general) out there: I just got my Truetone a few days ago, and there's some tarnish in some hard to get to areas. I was just wondering if it would be safe to immerse the sax in water (without removing the pads) Because I want to know if these 2 will...
  7. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    Okay, so I was playing my soprano sax equipped with my Dukoff metal mouthpiece the other day and noticed a slight chip on the right corner of the mouthpiece edge, where the mouthpiece and reed end (closest to the mouth). I know I didn't drop or damage the mouthpiece when I had it because the...
  8. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I just got a Yamaha-made Vito alto off eBay, and overall it's in rather good condition, but the bell has been curled back and poorly repaired: OK, someone walked into a door or dropped the horn and was too broke to get it fixed. No great mystery there. It's the more subtle bell damage that...
