  1. Tenor mpc
    Hey people. I'm looking for a mpc for the Tenor 66R (P. Mauriat) for these next months. What mpc works great or makes a positive difference in this sax? I want an edgier, brighter sound. As some of you may know, the 66R has this warm, dark and maybe too spread - sound. I wanna balance that...
  2. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Having purchased a Super Session soprano mouthpiece from an authorised dealer, I wondered if the rather irregular finishing (and thick uneven tip) was really 'to spec'. So I emailed Selmer customer service. Here's a picture of it: And here's the reply: Après vérification avec notre Chef...
  3. Reeds
    Tried a few different red 3's as well as some stronger reeds... Don't want to cause pains. Thanks. :)
  4. Baritone mpc
    I'm probably about to pull the trigger on a Buescher Big B baritone. Unfortunately I'm buying online and haven't played it or any horn like it. I'm getting a little worried about the vintage bari "pickle barrel" mouthpiece intonation issues I've been reading about here, where old baris only play...
  5. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Has anyone compared these two tenor mouthpieces?: Phil-Tone The Intrepid vs Drake Reso tenor. I'm looking for a new mouthpiece and considering one of these. What is your experience on these? How do they compare in tone, responsiveness, versatility, loudness, edge and darkness of sound?
  6. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    I have been playing the saxophone for almost two years since the beginning of high school and i struggled a lot in the beginning to get rid of the airy sound. One day, I found a very beat up mouthpiece in the mouthpiece bin and decided to used it (after disinfecting it) because I had left mine...
  7. Bb Tenor
    As much as I really like my 7* Link, it doesn’t really fit every scenario I want to play in. I understand 10ms are very picky with their mouthpieces, so I figured I’d ask you guys what mouthpieces usually go well with the 10m as to avoid buying one that won’t get along with the horn. (I heard...
  8. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    I'm a beginner. Many years ago I had a Jupiter alto but only took to it for a little while before moving on to a wind synth. Then, not quite two months ago, during this (four month isolated) pandemic I bought a TON of cheap saxes on Amazon. Two altos, two sopranos, and a tenor. They are all...
  9. Alto mpc
    Hi everyone! I'm currently looking at a Dukoff Super Power Chamber D6 for alto and was curious as to its validity as a legit piece and not a fake. I noticed this stamping error that I'm hoping will clue me in as to whether it's the real deal or not!
  10. Tenor mpc
    Anybody playing these? I'm playing a Four **** refaced to a 6* by Nicolas Trefeil and really like it, it did take a little getting used to
  11. Clarinet
    Anyone has any experiences with Gigliotti Advantage mouthpieces? I'm thinking of picking one up and was wondering what the differences between the A1 and the AS1 was? Thanks!
  12. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I'm needing a mouthpiece for an alto I was recently gifted (YAS 23), and I'd like something more open and cutting than the brillhart that it came with (duh). On another note, I'm considering shopping for a new tenor. I've been without for about 8 years, and as a tenor player, I've got the itch...
  13. Tenor mpc
    Does anybody have experience with these? They are available on ebay for a hundred dollars. I wonder there's no info on the internet. Here's the reference link:
  14. Sax Lifestyle & Sax Related Health Problems
    As a result of the serous problem of GAS Addiction suffered by many members on this forum and in the world at large I am starting a Virtual Online Chapter of Sax GAS Guzzlers Anonymous. It's a twelve step program with each step a note on the Chromatic Scale. However, depending on their degree...
  15. Baritone mpc
    hi folks - can anyone make a guess as to the ID on this old baritone / bass mouthpiece? I've no need for it, as I've sold both my baritones.
  16. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hi y'all and happy new year full of good vibes! last week I went to Europe's biggest music shop to try out some stuff. As soon as I tested the Jody Jazz Super Jet I was in love head over heals. The sound, the power, the grit, the response, the altissimo just freaking pops out effortless. Phew...
  17. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    I'm in high school, and it's my first year playing the sax. That might be why. I got a new mouthpiece (Rico alto 3c) and ligature (Rovner dark 1rl). I'm having more issues than I used to, and I can make low notes with a rolled lower lip. The problem is, when I use the lower lip embouchure, my...
