  3. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hey guys! This is my first post over here, so bear with me I guess. :) Well, I just got my hand on an old weltklang tenor from my grandparents and its just a touch beat up. On the outside, it looks pretty great, but some of the upper register doesn't quite work right. I suspect a couple of pads...
  4. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I have had my Yamaha 62 alto since the mid 80's. I've noticed that my C#, B, and Bb's keep going out of alignment on me. I've got a really good repairman. The last time he repaired it was about 3 weeks ago. Felt like a new horn! Then, suddenly this last weekend my low notes are gone again. You...

    I am going to upgrade to a different tenor sax and spent the past few days trying out horns at private dealerships and shops. Out of the 20+ that I tried, I have two favorites. From what I have found through my research, both are priced right. One of them is a vintage horn with a great...

    Hello, I have a tenor sax that I bought second hand. It's a cannonball and quite a nice model. I've been playing for two and a half years and have never had a problem but a couple days ago I couldn't play anything except a low D. My middle C, A and B squeal uncontrollably. I've checked all the...

    Hi everyone, I have a '36 Conn 10M that desperately needs some tender loving care, and being on an extended visit to the UK, I am not sure what the best options are for me. The sax needs an overhaul and a few bits and pieces sorted out. The troubles are: * New pads, springs, cork etc (regular...
  8. Conn
    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.
  9. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    I was wondering what cost of a yearly adjustment would be around. In addition, how much does it cost to take your sax to Emilio. Thanks

    Hello SOTW, I have an interesting story. A buddy of mine was given an old sax lamp by his uncle with the keys glued shut, the neck attached, and a clear epoxy throughout the body of the horn and neck. It turns out that this lamp is an 60XXX Mark Vi Tenor. :cry: Has anyone seen a sax lamp...
  11. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Hello, I'm a new member to this website but I found it online while doing some research for where to send my horn in for repairs. I have a Yamaha YAS-52 that I've owned now for at least 5 years. I have really enjoyed this horn and my father and I have played the same one. Mine is in need of...

    Just moved to Denver, & would love to find the best person to work on my saxes/flutes. I've been spoiled by going to Will Grizzle, in Atlanta, for many years....
