  1. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    Hi there, I started with a classical instructor a few months ago. Not only through the classical pieces I found I'm sloppy and work on my performance, my instructor picks on the things I'm not doing right and basically I learned things in a wrong way so he is giving me tips to correct them, such...
  2. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    Hey all, I am posting here because it talks about embouchure, and that might be what is wrong. I am getting back into sax after about 25 years. I just bought a new YTS62iii. I played it and it sounded like a bag of cats in a metal can. I took it to a tech, he made some adjustments, and it is...
  3. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    Hi folks, since about 6 month I try hard to improve my altissimo. I play on an early King Super 20 tenor (285xxx) with silver neck which is well set up. The horn had a full overhaul and is in great playing condition. There are no leaks all over the range of the horn and response from low...
  4. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    HI, I was wondering if anyone has a good, or any at all, fingering for altissimo G on alto or tenor sax. I am not talking about the G four lines above the staff, I mean the one eight bars up, yes that one. I have been playing for years now and I want to expand my range. Here's my setup if it...
  5. Yamaha
    Title says it all. I don't know why but my G (on top of staff) and sometimes my G#/Ab (still on top) always go to overtones when I'm switching from anything without using the octave key to it. I know it's not my embouchure because I've played on others and they're perfectly fine. This happening...
  6. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    As you may have guessed by the title, I am looking for a altissimo fingering chart/just someone to tell me fingerings. I know a lot of people claim this is useless and never comes up in music but my band director has already asked me if we could play this chart next year that involves altissimo...
  7. Bb Soprano
    Hi all, I made allstate this year again which is great but, I have a problem. One of the pieces calls for a clarinet double that I do not play and I would need to rent a soprano for this part which does not seem to be a problem. However, the problem comes in when actually playing the piece...
