  1. Eb Alto

  2. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I recently bought 2 altos (I believe they are the exact same make and model). Both go down to only B, have double octave key mechanisms, and lack other various modern keywork. I know of a few manufacturers who made horns similar to these back in the early 1900's or late 1800's, but I can't...

  7. Mouthpiece Maintenance, Modification & Refacing
    I was chosen to play Bari for our high school sax ensemble and have never played it before. It's pretty fun, but now I can't play it because when I was putting the mouthpiece it cracked on the shank. I really can't afford to buy a brand new C* so can it be repaired?
