  1. Bb Tenor
    As much as I really like my 7* Link, it doesn’t really fit every scenario I want to play in. I understand 10ms are very picky with their mouthpieces, so I figured I’d ask you guys what mouthpieces usually go well with the 10m as to avoid buying one that won’t get along with the horn. (I heard...
  2. Bb Tenor
    Recently I bought what at first I thought to be the holy grail of reeds... It was a box of (5) Vandoren Java Red 2.5s, and first thing I did was test the box to see which ones were good and which ones were not etc... To my shock it seemed the entire box played good...like not one reed did I...
  3. Forum Problem Reports and Questions
    I looked up an earlier thread on how to do it and also consulted the FAQ, and they both say to go to settings, which I did, and to click on edit profile picture on the lefthand side of the screen, near edit avatar. Much to my dismay, there is no option to change my profile picture in settings...
  4. Eb Baritone
    Contrary to my username, I play bari sax. I started after making this account. Anyway, I’m 5’1 (5’3 in my good boots) and I’m going to march bari. I ordered a Neo tech sling that goes over my shoulder, I think that’s going to help. I’m going to be the only Bari marching, and we’re going to a...
  5. EM Winston
    Hey everybody, thank you for taking the time to talk to me about my baritone saxophone. I have had my E.M. Boston Winston Pro1 Baritone Saxophone for a while now and have loved every second of it. It has great tone and everything you look for in a bari sax, although it's on the heavier side. I...
  6. Eb Alto
    I recently bought Sinta's book on Voicings, as recommended by my teacher. However, I'm having trouble with the high-F bending exercise (where you glissando down in semitones while fingering front F). I'm having a hard time often times getting below even Eb without the pitch dropping out. Several...
  7. Necks

  8. Tenor mpc
    I was just wanting to get some information and opinions (if possible) on an old mouthpiece I was given. I have not been able to find anything on it online so I might already have my answer. I was also told it was a vintage. But it is a tenor Runyon #6 and it has a grey/metal band around the...
  9. Bb Soprano
    Hi everybody I'm on my way to buy a new soprano sax. I currently own a Yamaha 475 which has a removed high f# key and is in rather bad condition. I've done a lot of digging and ended up with a list of saxes, that I would consider buying. Sadly it's impossible for me to test all of them (I have...
  10. Notation Software, MIDI, etc
    Hello! I have a Super Balanced Action Tenor sax and I’m looking for recommendations for a nice home recording mic. I recently bought myself a Focusrite Scarlett Studio bundle (2nd gen) and I’m happy with it but the mic that came with it doesn’t seem ideal for sax recording. However I’m only...
  11. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Correct me if I am wrong but the concert pitch of the soprano sax mouthpiece is a C correct? Because when I play on the mouthpiece respectively I play an F# with embouchure and a D without an embouchure. Currently using a Rousseau Nc4 mpc with daddario 3.5 reed. Update:Thanks for the feedback, I...
  12. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I saw this (bl/black laquered) soprano sax for sale at a relatively good price on ebay, auctioning at around 2k. But if anyone could help me tell weather or not this is counterfeit would be nice! Thanks in advance...
  13. What to Buy & Why: Saxophones
    I’m looking to buy a baritone I’ve played alto for about 4 years now and want to double on bari. I want to buy one in person, as buying online is a bit sketchy and I want to play test , but craigslist doesn’t have anything at all where I live,( Portland Or.). The only thing that I can find in...
  14. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I've started fixing my 100 year old Buescher C Melody, and I've ran into a bit of trouble. Most of the keys have been removed, but all of the main keys, along with a few side keys, and the screw for the octave key on the neck are stuck. I've used a ton of WD40 and WD40 rust removal, and although...
  15. Practicing
    Greetings forum, I am a junior in high school and I am a lover of all things Saxophone. I regularly read the forums and I own not only Larry Teal's book on Saxophone, I also own the Orchestral Saxophonist- so yeah, I'm kind of nerdy about it. For some reason, I have this personal ambition to...
  16. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    Hey guys! I am looking for some help getting my overtones under control. Basically I can consistently hit high F# but whatever fingering I try for high G or above comes out as a squeal. I don't exactly know what I'm doing wrong and it's very frustrating. I've hit G once but it was very...
