  1. Forum Problem Reports and Questions
    I looked up an earlier thread on how to do it and also consulted the FAQ, and they both say to go to settings, which I did, and to click on edit profile picture on the lefthand side of the screen, near edit avatar. Much to my dismay, there is no option to change my profile picture in settings...
  2. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I just got my sax adjusted and set up nicely. In the context of thumb problems, tonight, searching for better ergonomics, I was deciding to switch it around to straight in the front. (I usually hold it on the side.) With the neck on straight instead of at the angle, suddenly it is hard to get...
  3. Eb Baritone
    I've been playing bari for 5 years, and my JK for six months. It's a great horn, the only problem I've had is that G2-B2 sound really really airy. Does any one knew what could be causing this, I'm pretty sure it's not the amount of spit, it does it regardless of whether there's a lot or a...
  4. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I'm sure there's probably a thread on here about this, but I can't find it. What my question is exactly is what makes a $6000 sax more expensive than a $2000 sax. Here are some components that I've come up with, but they don't really add up... Structure - intonation and tone. Unless there is...
  5. Sax Lifestyle & Sax Related Health Problems
    I am a late bloomer when it comes to the sax. In fact, I did not start playing music until I turned 40 and crashed due to a medical problem. I was on my back for 9 months so I took up playing the harmonica just to help pass the time. After that, I never was quite the same (in multiple ways!)...
  6. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    Hey I have just recently picked up a Kessler Deluxe Soprano saxophone and my low E almost becomes a multi phonic. If I lower my jaw it goes out of tune but makes it a normal note. Weird right? It does the same thing with my low F as well. The high registers work fine as well as low Bb and such...
  7. Bb Tenor
    Hi there people -- it's a bit of a long intro, so you can read the problems first and /then/ the intro if it's easier. xD I'm a new member on this site, but I've been reading through a lot of topics and threads that may or may not be my problem. I'm a high schooler and have been playing alto...

    There were intermittent problems in accessing the forum. They manifested themselves as database problem but now it looks like the ISP still has some network problems. Your access may be limited depending on your routing (and you are not able to read this anyway.) :twisted:
  9. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    So, I've played the sax for about 6 years now, and I thoroughly enjoy it. I started on my lovable Bundy II, and have recently gotten a Selmer S80. My brother recently gave me his old horn from when he was in band a few years back, and it could be in far better condition. I knew he had trouble...
  10. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hi! I just bought a mouthpiece for my tenor, otto link STM 9*, and on my alto I play a Jody Jazz HC 7M. Now my problem is that when I have blown abit in my new tenor mouthpiece then I have problems blowing in my alto if I try it directly after. Anyone know any good tip? I have now switched the...
  11. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hey, I just recently purchased a new alto saxophone, and I am having an issue with one note (the second-lowest D, think it's called D5). Half of the time when I play it, the note either squeaks or doesn't come out at all. I know it's not my embouchure, mouthpiece or reed, because I've played...
  12. Reeds
    greetings all, I've been playing sax since 1979 and I have to say I have never had a more difficult time finding good reeds. In the past maybe I'd have to go thru 3 or 4 to find a good one, but presently I feel like I've gone thru 10-12 reeds w/o finding a good one. anyone know what's going...
