    hi folks, Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer! We've been renting an alto (Bundy, pretty clunky) from Music & Arts for a couple of years and DD has decided she wants to stick with it for a while. She seems to have some talent at it and coming from a very musical family, we're...
  2. Selmer (Paris)
    I was hoping we could get some crowdsourced data on the current market value for Mark VI alto and tenor saxes. People are asking for what I perceive to be outrageous prices, which is making it very difficult to parse through the weeds and know what is a fair asking price for a horn in decent...

    Hello! I've been playing alto for about 6 years now and I really want to learn how to play the tenor, however I can't seem to find which jazz mouthpiece I'd like to start out on.

    How many euros should I pay for a used EX90 II tenor? The serial number starts 113... so if I read the Keilwerth serial number charts correctly it should be late 90s, early 00s model.

    Thinking about buying one, but I've heard that they're kind of expensive to have repaired, even for simple stuff like adjusting the C# screw. Is this your experience? Also, about how much are these worth? The one I'm looking at is $2500, but that is with a replaced plastic key guard.

  17. Eb Alto
    Hi all, I've been looking for an SBA alto and I tried one over the weekend that I really liked. The tone in middle and low registers was very warm, rich and lyrical. I couldn't get the high notes to sound that well (sounded a bit shrill) but I think it would once I spend more time on it with...
