  1. Playing Songs
    I'll start by saying that this is my first post here and that I'm 17 and in my last year of high school. Now for the question at hand, which version of Pequena Czarda should I play? I'm at a crossroads because I like both but I also don't have that much time to get it down. The version I like...

  3. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    So you know what they say, "mony a mickle maks a muckle" Well I am looking to buy a Tenor saxophone. It doesn't matter to me much how it looks like, the material or lacquer.

  8. 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...
  9. Tenor mpc
    Hi! I'm recently bought a berg larsen metal 95/2 SMS and wonder if it could be vintage? I paid like 40$ so I just took a chance. I'm well aware that could just be a regular Berg Larsen and the bite plate is missing.
  10. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hey guys! I recently got an old Weltklang tenor from my grandparents and, while it's not in the worst shape, it definitely not in full working condition. It for sure needs to be cleaned out and some of the upper register along with the low Bb don't quite work right. The G sounds pretty wacky...
  11. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hey guys! This is my first post over here, so bear with me I guess. :) Well, I just got my hand on an old weltklang tenor from my grandparents and its just a touch beat up. On the outside, it looks pretty great, but some of the upper register doesn't quite work right. I suspect a couple of pads...

  15. Alto mpc
    I've been playing saxophone for about 5 years. I'm in 11th grade now, but a couple things are bothering me to an extreme extent... The first problem is that my sound, itself, isn't where I feel it should be. It isn't full or big. Altissimo is also extremely hard for me to hit dispite my 5 years...
  16. Practicing
    I have recently been getting into the 12 bar blues and theory behind it with my sax teacher. He gave me the universal chord progressions for basic blues and told me to write out the chords in a couple different keys. I am working on F, and am having trouble with the C7 chord. I don't know if...
  17. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I recently got my sax repaired and then a problem occurred. I attempted to do a B within the staff to the B above the staff, but all the sound i was getting was just a plain ol' B within the staff. This applies to the other notes, too (A,C,D, etc.). However, after squeezing my embouchure really...

    I recently came into possession of a beuscher aristocrat for around £1400 GBP, including a mouthpiece and a large selection of reeds.

  20. Eb Alto
    I got an alto mouthpiece from an avid collector, but he had just got it and didn't tell me anything about it or any history on it. I can't find anything on the web about it, and I'm hoping you guys could educate me. I have a C4 Cashion alto mouthpiece. Would love some help, thanks!
