    Hi all, I’m about to bite the bullet on a new tenor sax, and I’ve been able to find Mk VIIs in my budget. I am shopping used, and for around the same price I’ve found cannonball vintage reborn tenors (I’ve had the Chance to play them and I really like them) The only issue is, while I love the...
  2. Late Bloomers
    Leaving a Cannonball Pete Christlieb vintage tenor for a 10M. Is this wise? I'm 50 and played in junior high school and really want to get good. Had a few lessons via skype with Greg Fishman and David Valdez but my work schedule makes it difficult. Also started transposing various solo's using...
  3. Practicing
    Hi everybody, Jazz is a music of improvisation, however we know that it is not necessarily all just "made up." It is more like spontaneous composition in which we take what we know and use it to create music. When listening to the greats, we can sometimes hear that there are pieces of their...
  4. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi guys, I have been in touch with some of you regarding nailing down the tenor sax that sounds rich and has a good amount of core sound to it. Well, I settled on Buffet Crampon Super Dynaction. I really love the tone. My instructor has a 5 digit mark VI and he always complements the sound of...

  7. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hi all! I've been playing tenor sax for about 10 years and over the summer I taught myself altissimo and have been listening to a lot of Brecker (and Dexter)... I went into jazz ensemble the other day and the professor, after hearing me improvise along to a blues, said he was impressed with...
  8. Barone
    Bought a Barone Vintage alto, bare brass, in my search for a workhorse horn so I don't have to bring out the Mark VI alto and tenor, which IMHO are now too expensive to justify leaving in cars and on bandstands in smoky clubs with open back doors etc. Being one who feels vintage horns offer...
  9. Alto mpc
    I'm prolly wrong but it seems that everbody that uses a modern Link uses AT LEAST a 7. Look at this guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grjWx8YeFok He is useing a 10*! Reading customor reviews most use 7, 7*, 8, and 8* I guess what I'm asking is is this MPC just feel like a smaller tip then it...
