  1. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Don't get me wrong, I love trumpet playing. Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan and Woody Shaw are three of my all-time favorite jazz musicians on any instrument. That said, the truth is that the trumpet is a really loud instrument and being higher-pitched than a sax it can dominate a jam session when...
  2. Clarinet
    I'm playing in a wind-only concert band and really need to get more loudness out of the alto-clarinet. I've tried taking in heaps of mouthpiece; and loosening the screw nearest the tip on the ligature. What else I could do? I am using a Hite mouthpiece, wondering whether a Fobes or Grabner would...
  3. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    I'm approximately 3.5 years in and I feel like while progression in tone, articulation and control is coming along I still need huge help with my dynamics whilst playing - especially just playing softly. I play with people rarely but enough to always get that look of 'geez, turn it down, man!'...
  4. Tenor mpc
    Good afternoon gurus! Setup: Link STM 8 (with some work done by JT, purchased used) with good ol' orange-box rico reeds (strength 3) on a Yamaha Custom. Here's the predicament that I'm in: Over the course of the last year I've been playing most of my gigs in an acoustic setting. Just myself...
  5. Recordings, Movies
    Hello everyone. I Just wanted to post a thread about my new recording with my new project called "Willamette". It's a straight-up rock recording, fronted by myself on baritone saxophone. It's big, nasty and pretty loud, and all songs are my original compositions. Please feel free to preview...
  6. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I was playing alto for a while and now I've got my beautiful new tenor and tonight I was practicing and I literally heard this: "Shut the f*** up you p****k" repeated continuously and quite agressively. When I played my alto, my neighbour Jon banged on the wall so I saw him and sorted things...
  7. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    Is there anyone that knows the notes to "Move on Up" by Curtis Mayfield? I have loved this song for years now and just thought about playing it and I can't seem to fish out the notes on my own. Any help or advice on learning the piece would be good, thanks.
  8. Alto mpc
    Hey, I purchased my first vintage horn a while back and I was looking for a mouthpiece to match. I currently play on a Link STM 7. It's nice and all but I don't think it really matches up with the Chu. I'm kind of looking for a sound that can scream when I want it to and really get that great...
  9. Baritone mpc
    I was recently the 1st chair bari sax in my county's honor band. The guy who was second chair was using a school bari with a HUGE, FAT mouthpiece. This thing's chamber was seriously almost FIST SIZED. Not QUITE that big, But way bigger than mine (I was using a Yamaha 5C on my bari, which had...
