doubling

  1. Multi Sax!
    Hello, I currently own three instruments - a soprano sax, a tenor sax, and a clarinet. The soprano to me is the most fun to play and I spend the most time on it, though I am aware it lacks the versatility of the other instruments. My favourite music to play is Dixieland/Traditional jazz...
  2. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    For my fellow doublers (you can read my profile and see I’ve been well-versed in most wind instruments): what is the most unique doubling opportunity you’ve had? My senior year of high school I was a doubler on bari sax and tuba, as my school only had two players for each instrument other than...
  3. Multi Sax!
    Hey y'all! I'm primarily a baritone sax player and I've been using the Kessler Solist custom bari and it's been great (I highly recommend using it by the way)! I've recently been learning about doubling. I do know that sax players usually double on other woodwinds such as flute or clarinet, and...
  4. Cases
    Hi, anyone has recomendations for alto sax + clarinet + flute cases? I've been looking at the protec and it has been really attractive especially since you can use the flute and clarinet pouches as single cases essentially, but wanted to get some advice before I spend that much money. Using...
  5. Clarinet
    Hey all, I'm super excited to finally dive into the doubling world, and I've found a decent enough clarinet on Craigslist. You see, I was searching around Craigslist and Reverb for a Yamaha YCL-250, because based on some posts I've read here, and other articles, they work well enough for...
  6. Double Reeds
    First post alert! :mrgreen: I'm a masters graduate of Trinity Laban Conservatoire, specialising in woodwind doubling - flute (and picc), all sizes of sax, and Bb/Bass clarinets. I also have some level of proficiency on oboe, if absolutely necessary... I'm interested in taking up bassoon. I...
  7. Clarinet
    Which Used Clarinet To Buy For 1400 € Hey Sax-people, :) I'm searching for good used clarinet for 1400 € for doubling in Big Band! Any ideas, models, types? Thank you!:mrgreen:
  8. Double Reeds
    Hello all! I have just become a user here, but I have been browsing for a while, and I had a question that I thought I would come and ask. I have been playing sax for about six years now, and I am really loving it! Over the past three years I have also learned clarinet and flute. I have just...
  9. Shows
    Hello! I've been a member of the SOTW forum for a little while, but this is my first post! I will be a junior in high school this fall, and (as you can see in my username,) I play bassoon, saxophones, and clarinets. I've been playing clarinet since 3rd grade and bassoon and sax since 5th. I...
  10. Reeds
    Hello, I wil be playing in a version of the adams family musical in september. In the arrangement i need to play clarinet, tenor, alto and soprano sax. I normaly play all these instruments with Vandoren Blue box reeds. I never played four instruments in one show before. I'm afraid i will have...
  11. Clarinet
    A few weeks ago I finished writing and publishing a book I am very proud of. I developed a method to integrate the practice of woodwind doublings. It took me 10 years to write it, but it was worth every minute. I love this book and (humbly) I believe it is one of my best contributions so far...
  12. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hello, I am a tenor saxophonist, sorry about not replying to my other forums, I decided on the Viking Saxophone, and I love it. If you want me to do a review on it sometime, I'd be happy to. Me being a tenor saxophonist, I realized in the world, there aren't always gonna be tenor saxoohone...
  13. General Discussion
    I've been playing flute for a while now, I'd consider myself a good player considering my age (14) and a fast learner. I'm switching to alto sax for now and will be starting private lessons tomorrow. Considering that the fingerings are very similar, the fact that I can produce a decent sound on...
  14. Clarinet
    I have been doubling for quite a while- 20 years or so- mostly pit orchestra reed books. I have found that when moving from Alto or Tenor to Bb Clarinet, the clarinet mouthpiece seems very resistant. Like blowing against a wall. My setup on alto & tenor is generally a Caravan with Vandoren...
  15. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    Has anyone come up with efficient exercises for embouchure fatigue recovery (for reed players)? Kind of what stretching is for athletes after a long practising day. I'm working as a professional multireed player and I've noticed that after few extra-long studio/rehearsal/practising/gig -days...
  16. Clarinet
    Hello! I've been playing the sax (alto, tenor and soprano) for 14 years now and the time as come to finally........learn the clarinet! It's something I've put to the back of my mind for a long time but I know now I need to start learning it properly especially as I'm starting to teach a lot...
  17. Flute & Piccolo
    I am looking for a cheap, CHEAP flute to use for doubling in pit orchestras. I am a saxophone/clarinet player so naturally flute is the next in line. I don't want to spend a lot of money on it as for now it's only use is low pay theater gigs and I was wondering if anybody here has opinions on...
  18. Flute & Piccolo
    I am a rising freshman at the Hartt school (majoring in saxophone performance) and I have been playing saxophone for 9 years, oboe for 3, and clarinet for 2. What's the best way to start learning the flute? What exercises should I do? Should I get a book? Which one?
  19. Flute & Piccolo
    Hello SOTW!! I'm a saxophone player, and have been learning the flute for about 6 months now. I have been learning on a beginner flute worth about £190 ($280) and I think I've gone as far as I can go with it. It is terrible! I have quite a few large gigs coming up this year, and want to buy a...
  20. Misc. Instruments and Voice
    It used to be that synthesizers did not really do a great job trying to sound like a Trumpet, Trombone, or French Horn. That has all changed with the software synthesizer breakthroughs from samplemodeling. Their stuff is light years ahead of what you had from Roland, Yamaha, and others. Not...
