  2. Tenor mpc
    This forum is crazy huge, and I hope that I learn a think or two from all of you guys. Anyways, I joined to ask a bit of advice, since I find it quite difficult to find solid information on purchasing tenor saxophone mouthpieces on the web.

    Hello All, I'm looking for feedback and insight into your experiences regarding finding mouthpieces that work best for you. What do you hate about it?

  4. Necks
    The previous owner of my YAS-61 made the unfortunate decision to insert an electronic pickup in the neck. It has been corked over, but I have to fight to get an acceptable tone. Now that I'm going to college, it's time for a new neck. I want one that isn't too expensive but still has a good...

    Hello All :) And thanks for taking the time to read this thread. I have a problem, fellow saxophonists, and I know that there are many saxophonists active on the forum that would be able to help me with it, but first a short background of me as a player. I've been playing for about 10 years...
  9. Monique and DC Pro
    My band teacher is selling a black-lacquer DC Pro Series II alto. It's very nice looking and since he's been a professional saxophonist for something like 30 years I trust him enough to give it a try. It is mostly brand-new, owned for 3 months and then when its original owner passed away it...
