  1. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    Hi, I have a Chateau VCH-221 (http://www.chateaumusicusa.com/vch-221/) Which is a fairly inexpensive alto saxophone. I paid around 550USD for it. Anyways, Does anyone know the make/mode of the stock mouthpiece? I've been playing for more than a month now and was planning to upgrade the...
  2. Tenor mpc
    Hello. After several years of not playing, I'm returning to practicing saxophone and learning jazz music. Currently I'm playing a Selmer Reference 54 tenor, with an Otto Link hard rubber (6 opening). It's a sweet mouthpiece if I want to play Paul Desmond/Stan Getz-sounding tunes, and it's one...
