I searched thomann but couldn't find any information about these saxophones.
I have an old R&C silver alto manufactured in 1920s (info from R&C themselves), what value might the saxophone have? The finish is very worn and it has a crack where the neck screw is attached, but it is still very playable.
A little bit of backstory- I work in instrument repair and come across a ton of instruments weekly. I just started in October, but there was a flute that had been sitting on the repaired shelf since early 2018. It was a Yamaha YFL-684, a discontinues 600-series model flute with an inline G and...
As I was practicing today, I started to notice that my fingers were super flat against the keys of my alto sax. I know that on piano you are meant to curve your fingers quite a lot, but I'm not sure so much about sax. I've been playing for 6.5 years so I'm not sure why this question only just...
I'm looking to expand my sax vocabulary by either getting an EWI or the upcoming Yamaha digital sax. Which Akai EWI model do you like the most, out of the EWI USB, 4000S, 5000, and the Solo? Personally, I love how user-friendly the Solo is, but I think the Patchman Music soundbank for the 4000S...

Below i would like to share with you, an excerpt from our student concert, in Athens. Here i play with my jazz combo, a sax solo...
Announcing a consortium for a new 3-movement sonata for baritone saxophone and piano! I've been writing a lot for saxophone the past four years and have heard time and time again that there's not enough rep for bari, so I'm trying to do my part to remedy that.
Duration: 12-15 minutes
Here is my new song, made for my wife’s birthday : )
I’ve put some work in this and I’m pretty happy with the result.
Note that I only use one sax. A tenor... and a pitching effect!! Everything is made on iPhone 7 Plus with GarageBand, recorded in Saxmute One with Gear4music...
Perhaps some of you may be interested by my latest Saxloops tutorial. It shows some nice things that can be done today with iDevices. Everything is made with my iPhone, including sax song. A bit technical but I hope you will enjoy!!
Hello everyone, I just graduated high school and had to give back my school owned tenor (a 1980's Yamaha 62). I'm looking to buy my own horn now, on a budget of $1500-$2000 (though I'd like to stay on the lower end). I play on a relatively advanced level, both jazz and classical, and I use...
Hello guys, i've been playing tenor saxophone for about a year, so i want to try a new mouthpiece (change my yamaha 4c) and i was thinking of a vandoren v16 t6 HR.
What do you guys think? Is it a good option?
Thanks in advance
Hey everyone! I have a new video for you, and it's a new style of video for me- "vlog" type if you will. It shows everything that went into performing at the King's Theater in Brooklyn, NY with the great Israeli pop sensation Gad Elbaz. I show you some of the traveling, rehearsing, backstage...
Hey everyone! Back again with another new video. This is a favorite of mine- Coltrane's "Giant Steps." But this time, I'm on PIANO! (eeek) This is a duo version featuring my good friend Joe Schmidt on tenor sax. I hope you enjoy it, and let me know what you think!!
Back again with another installment of my "Duo Sessions. "Here's volume 2- "Alone Together." Hope you dig it!! Also, vol. 3 will be posted later this week and will be another original of mine (a bunch of you have asked for that!)
I am a junior in high school and I am a lover of all things Saxophone. I regularly read the forums and I own not only Larry Teal's book on Saxophone, I also own the Orchestral Saxophonist- so yeah, I'm kind of nerdy about it. For some reason, I have this personal ambition to...
Hey everyone! I'm excited to announce I'm back with my "Christmas Tune of the Day" for 2017. I've done it the past few years but only posted the videos to Facebook- this year they will all be on YOUTUBE!!
Here's how it works- I post new videos of popular holiday songs each day from December 1st...
Here is my audition video for the upcoming 2018 Grammy Band. We have to play Billie's Bounce then get to choose 2 other songs of contrasting styles. Please give me your comments and critique- I'd love some feedback!
The age old debate- Student vs Professional model saxophones. I've seen lots of discussion of this, but here's a video with some information on each instrument (plus playing examples on each!). Are the pro saxes worth their asking price? Is the difference between them justified? Watch this video...
