When you can’t find answers anywhere else, why not come here? Has anybody here ever encountered a metal clarinet such as this:
nickel plating over brass body
fused bell to lower joint
separate lower and upper joint
screw adjustable barrel (three separate pieces)
possible manufactured year 1934...
Got this sax from my uncle. He found it at a garage sale so I don’t know the history. I think it is a C melody but I’m not a 100% sure about this. It’s in mediocre condition, in need of a cleaning and work on the octave key. Would love to know when about it was made, that type it is, and it’s worth.
As a christmas present I was given a second alto sax, my great great uncles who died before I was born. I love the way it plays and the tone of its low range compared to my horn, but cant find any information on it. Anyone know anything?
Serial number is 7134
Months ago pulled this sax from the rummage sale at my church because I felt that we'd find a better buyer elsewhere. I haven't played sax since middle school and am having a hard time getting precise identification on the instrument.
Tenor sax. It is stenciled TONE KING on the bell...
Can you tell me what kind of neck this is?
This neck came with a King Super 20 alto (as a second neck), but I am pretty sure it is not right for this horn.
The neck tenon fits fine, but the bottom part of the octave mechanism is about 1/2 inch higher up than it ought to be.
In other words, it...
I came into this old Selmer mouthpiece and am trying to figure out exactly what model it is.
It seems like there are a number of similar mouthpieces from that era but they vary in whether they have a fancy engraving, and how many grooves on the side etc.
I'm thinking this might be a...
I just posted a similar post on the alto mouthpiece thread. One of the technicians that I frequent was trying to get rid of a bunch of mouthpieces that he had laying around. He had a bin of mostly no name stock mouthpieces and chipped up 4C's, and told me I could take anything I...
One of the technicians that I frequent was trying to get rid of a bunch of mouthpieces that he had laying around. He had a bin of mostly no name stock mouthpieces and chipped up 4C's, and told me I could take anything I found interesting. I saw this mouthpiece and didn't recognize...
I recently bought a second hand tenor and in the box was a weird mouthpiece. There is no marking on the piece itself (completelly black hard rubber), but a logo on the ligature that goes with it. Has anyone seen this before :
I play tenor saxophone and I need some help identifying a metal mouthpiece that I have been using. The mouthpiece lacks any kind of sign, title, name, or words that would help to identify it. It is a 7 star metal mouthpiece, and any help or suggestions as to what steps I need to take or what...
Has anyone ever compiled a list of refacers and what marks they put on mouthpieces?
I know a number don't put anything on, but I've seen some marks and have no idea who they are.
Recent examples are ME 71 and CDH on the side of Meyers.
So i am in Brasil at the moment and i went into a store to look for just a MIDI to USB cable but ended up looking at some saxophones they had. I saw 2 sopranos (i want one lol) and asked to look at it. he gave me a used one to look at and hold. it was 999 real about US$700-800 i would think. i...
I recently found a really old, surprisingly playable, C. G. Conn silver "American Professional" alto saxophone #13495. It has a split bell and a G# trill key. I cannot find anything online about the existence of this saxophone and I was hoping there would be someone to help me out. Thanks!!
