  1. Sax Body and Finish
    Hello. I have one question. Does it make sense or is it even possible to put lacquer over the patina? In case I have an unlacquered sax and want it to be dark lacquer (rather very dark brown/dark grey than black). I like silver plated saxes but it is a bit of headache from what I know thus I...

  3. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    Hi everyone. Recently I bought a 1920 buescher tt curved soprano, and I was looking at mouthpieces. There are a lot of options, so I was wondering if I could get any recommendations on a large round chambered hr mouthpiece. Something dark and full but with some punch.
  4. Tenor mpc
    I've been using metal pieces for a while, mostly in large tips (10*) and it feels good but I'm interested in trying out a dark, hard rubber, large chamber piece that is (ideally) affordable. I've been VERY curious to maybe pick up a Drake Bergonzi 10* or a Son of Slant Large Chamber in the...

  10. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    I'm in High School and I've been trying to make my tone brighter than my usual sound, which is naturally very dark according to many of my peers. I even got a Jumbo Java A45 to brighten my tone. I don't know if it's just me, but for some reason, I can't seem to get a bright tone, even on the...

    Hey guys, I was wondering your opinions and experiences with the modern plastic Brilhart Ebolins. How would you describe the way they alter your sound? They seem like reasonably neutral mouthpieces, but do they lean toward making you sound a bit brighter or darker? Thanks guys. I've been...

  13. Ligatures
    Hello to all! I know there are similar threads like this out there but none of them say it how I wish to. Currently I am using my Rovner Dark for all playing, but recently I have seen many posts talking about how the Rovner Dark deadens the sound. I have never really thought about ligatures...
