  1. Tenor mpc
    Hello all, I was in to purchase a mouthpiece for a soon to be high schooler playing a tenor sax. He is playing on Vandoren classics size 3, and on a Yamaha 4C. He wants a new mouthpiece and is getting a Legere Studio reed soon. I got an offer for a Bari Nickel mouthpiece which comes with the...
  2. Flute & Piccolo
    I have an Armstrong alto flute s/n #28-38864 which I purchased new in Wash. D.C. in 1979. The doctor recently diagnosed my lip problem as a nickel allergy. Can anyone tell me whether there is nickel in the head joint of this instrument? If so, where can I get a non-nickel head joint? Theo Wanne...
  3. General Discussion
    Hello everyone. I recently bought this SML tenor and I was wondering if anyone of you had some useful or interesting infos on this nice horn. It has two 5-pointed stars and a "SUPER" engraving, but no number (e.g. 47, 48 or 49). The serial number is 73xx, so I assume it's a 1949 "Super". Is...

    Here's a fun new topic, eh? And I'm actually very intrigued to hear what you all think. The skinny: I recently got my hands on a BEAUTIFUL Nickel plated Conn "Chu Berry" Alto sax (#M169,3xx - 1926) just last week. A proud new father. It also came with it's original case which is in very nice...
  7. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hi, Has anyone ever re-plated a sax? I understand Anderson in Elkhart has a good reputation, but they won't give me general information until I send my sax up to them. I have 2 tenor saxes and I am considering one of them. 1) H.Couf - it's in terrible condition, parts of it are green and...
