  1. Beaugnier, G. Leblanc & Vito
    Hi all, first time poster, long time user here. I’ve recently acquired a Vito model 35 Leblanc-style alto. It’s in great mechanical shape, and looks great, though it could use a new pad or two. I’m especially interested in the leblanc-style fingerings and system of tonehole placement. Reviews...
  2. Cases
    Hi Everybody, For years I knew that the alto version of the Bam softpack comes with 2 backpack straps, and the tenor comes with only one. According to the description on their website, it seems like Bam added the 2nd backpack strap to their tenor softpack case - making it one of (or the only?)...
  3. Eb Alto
    Hello. I have a Jupiter alto saxophone, and in the middle of practicing I suddenly heard something fall into the bell. It turned out to be a small screw. I scoured the sax trying to find an empty hole but was unsuccessful. I'm still a beginner and don't know all of the keys, so it's also been...
  4. General Discussion
    So, I play clarinet right now in my high school band. My band director is having me learn the tenor sax over the summer, but I don't know much about it. For instance, what key signature is the tenor sax? Is it treble or bass clef? Can anyone out there help me so I know these things and other...
  5. General Discussion
    Hi. I'm going to a Band Camp very soon and it requires a chromatic scale of at least 2 octaves. I'm doing Bb to F (not f#) on Alto sax. Will I place higher if I tongue it in a medium-fast tempo (155-160bpm) or slur it but even faster (200bpm)? The audition said nothing about tongued or slurred.
  6. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    So about 15 years ago, I was unhappy with a mouthpiece I bought for use with my tenor in high school jazz band. My director gave me a Nemo mouthpiece with 3 * etched on the side just before the shank. My question about it is, does anybody have a sizing chart for the tenor Nemo mouthpieces? Or...
  7. High School and College
    So, I'm going to be a senior in high school in a few months, and I've started contemplating what major I should go into. Here's the thing: I am planning on going to dental school. In other words, it'll be like I'm double-majoring, technically, with Pre-Dentistry. (Which, to get into dental...
  8. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    I'm looking for a site or app that provides the sheet music and background music to allow me to play along with my alto sax. I'd be really surprised if such thing doesn't exist, but a Google search didn't yield meaningful results beyond the old fashioned CDs and books. Maybe you guys can help?
  9. Sax Body and Finish
    Hi, i have a few questions for some people that have better knowledge of this kind of thing. I have a martin tenor saxophone. 1950's. It has a dull silver finish on the outside but the keys seem to be lacquered silver. The inside of the bell however is gold. I do not know if this was possibly...

  11. Ligatures
    So here's my questions --> 1) How do different ligatures affect the player's tone? 2) How long do ligatures typically last (unexposed to climate and weather, i.e., marching band)? 3) What ligatures do you use? 4) Are there any good ligatures that can actually hold down a synthetic reed?
  12. Jazz and Improvisation
    So, I'm curious as to how you guys like to practice your licks? Some specific questions I have are: Do you find it more important to practice one lick in all twelve keys, or practice on lick and learn 11 more in different keys?(If you think both, go ahead and say so but try to pretend that...

  14. Runyon ONLY
    I will let the pictures explain. All I know is they are both marked Runyon. The white one has no other markings, but appears and plays to be about the same tip opening as the black one (9). Any help would be great! http://s1184.photobucket.com/albums/z324/steperry1/

  16. Conn
    I'm looking at a Conn 6m tenor, and the guy says the serial number is 816808, when would that have been made? My best guess is late 60's, early 70's. Also, what would this thing be like as far as keywork, intonation, and "features" be like. I know it would't have rolled tone holes or that...

    Hello all, I have been getting back into playing the alto after not playing for almost a decade and realized I actually know very little about my setup. I've been playing on an old Conn "Shooting Star" student model and will be switching up to an Olds Parisian Ambassador pretty soon and have...
