    Phil Barone Vintage Tenor vs. P. Mauriat PMXT-66 vs. Eastman 52nd St. - Help Hi Saxontheweb community, first time poster here. To cut to the chase, I'm thinking about buying a Phil Barone vintage tenor based on all of the reviews I have read on this website, and some sound tests I saw on...
  2. Tenor mpc
    Hi all, I'm looking for some help understanding this Precision Crafted mouthpiece in my possession. I know that they were made by Phil Barone, but I cannot seem to find any other information about it. It looks like it was made from a Guardala blank. Is that the case? Are these mouthpieces...
  3. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Gentlemen of SOTW, I recently purchased my new Barone Classic Tenor a few months ago as a back up horn for gigging. When I first got the horn i noticed that it played incredibly out of tune, on the order of 30-40c sharp The only way to remedy that it was to either pull the mouthpiece out so far...
  4. Ligatures

  5. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    Hi, I have been playing soprano for about six months (I play tenor), I play with a Phil Barone 7 and I think I am having difficulties for its tip opening (I guess it is too big for me). The sound is terrific, but I can not handle the sound properly. Do you think I have to switch to a more closed...
  6. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hello everyone. After searching for quite some time, I *think* I found the mouthpiece I am looking for (and will probably check it out in person, either way): http://www.pmwoodwind.com/instruments.cfm?c=2&instrumentid=4212&morepics=1 My question: these ones, I presume, are some of Phil's later...

  9. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi there, Sorry to bug you about this subject. I'm getting to the final stage of decision making for a curved soprano sax. Would you give me your final feedback? gold lacquer Phil Barone (relatively new) vs. silver plated Borgani Macerata (old logo, one piece body). Both are in good shape. Both...
  10. Bb Soprano
    I am considering purchasing a soprano and I am at a bit of a crossroads as to what to buy. At the absolute top of my price range is a Phil Barone, but I am also considering a Kessler Custom, or perhaps an Antigua. I know that there are other good sopranos in that price range, but I am at a loss...
  11. Barone
    I had a chance recently to A/B my new Phil Barone Classic Alto with my teacher's Mark VI alto (using identical Meyer HR mouthpiece and reed on both horns). We both played both horns and listened to each other. We were surprised that the tone of the classic alto was very closely matched in...
  12. Bb Soprano
    Which one do you recommend for an Alto and Tenor player. A phil Barone Curved soprano or a Yanagisawa SC991? i know the price is slightly different but price is not everything :) For the finish on the Phil Barone i am kinda thinking Antique Bronze. So an Antique Bronze Curved Phil Barone...

    Review - Phil Barone Classic Straight Soprano Antique Bronze Finish For years I have been a soprano owner but not a soprano player. That’s partly because I usually am out playing tenor and bari but it’s also because my soprano and I just didn’t get along. I have an old Beuscher straight...
  15. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hoping this won't be too repetetive, I want to say a proper public thanks to Phil Barone. Many of you have probably followed bits and pieces of the near epic thread in the Marketplace Forum regarding the maiden batch of Phil's new Jazz models. I got a J8, and after playing it for a few days, I...
