  1. Noblet
    Hello All, I am new to the forum and I am very glad to have joined. Anyways, I VERY recently purchased a Noblet Paris tenor sax from the good people at Saxquest. I plan on doing the work myself to get it into top shape (pray for me). Anyways, it's a very pretty horn, but in spite of all the...
  2. Necks
    hi, i would need some help on how Noblet tenor necks are built and would greatly appreciate any feedback/info/hints/help.

  3. Beaugnier, G. Leblanc & Vito
    There was a Noblet soprano sax on ebay that I purchased. Got it today. What a beautiful tone! It needs more work than advertised, and it lacks an aux F.

  8. Other Woodwind Repair, Maintenance & Modification
    Hello all, I'm a High School student with a fascination for woodwind instrument repair. I have a few questions: - Would RooPads be good for a marching horn? I know they are naturally waterproof, but not sure how well they would hold up - Are MusicMedic's RooPads better or are Instrument Clinic's...
  9. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    The saga continues...... Any opinions on these models that fall within my budget of +/- $2000. I might be able to go higher, but here is what I have found so far, all with Low-A. A big consideration would be the tables/keywork for small hands. Amati Abs 31 Buescher 400 Conn 11M Dolnet...
  10. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
