    Hey everyone, back with another video! This is part of my "Real Talk Real Tips" series where I give legitimate advice. In this video I talk about the things it takes to be a professional OUTSIDE of playing the music. I only discussed a few topics, but I think they are very important to those...
  2. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    I'm a firm believer in the player makes the saxophone (see below). I currently have a fully functional YTS 23 that plays brilliantly. The makeup of the horn is a bit blocky, the action isn't the greatest and the clickiness of the keys are too audible when I am trying to play softly. I've been...

  4. Eb Alto
    I have a Yamaha 480 alto. My objective was to get a relatively cheap but almost new to avoid the hassle, good build with good standards (computerized hole cut, and part dimensions, etc. which means being in tune, and with a decent action and ergonomic aspects).

Since most college auditions start towards the end of the year and thats when my auditions will be coming up I have...
  7. Yamaha

If I remember correctly I tried out a Yamaha Custom Z (Series II), a Yamaha 62 (Series III), and a Yamaha 475 along with my EX of course. I wasn't impressed with the custom Z I thought that...
  8. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I was hoping someone here might be able to shed some light on the Allora Paris series tenor saxophones. I have been playing my school borrowed Yamaha YTS-52 for 8 years and love it. I have done it all with the 52. (concert, jazz, solos, theater, marching band) Now that I'm graduating, I want a...

There are two options for me to buy: Ida Maria Grassi Tenor Professional from 1981 vs. Professional 2000 made in mid 80s. The Professional looks like new. Professional 2000...
