  1. Selmer (USA)
    Hello everyone! I'm new in this Forum so this post Is my start heređź‘‹ I managed to get this Selmer USA Bari Sax in very Bad shape. It probably was property of an army big band, based in the Netherlands. The only safe Information I have is the serial number, which is 1031056. Can anyone tell me...

    i need to know what is it and what's the price of it..
  3. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Having purchased a Super Session soprano mouthpiece from an authorised dealer, I wondered if the rather irregular finishing (and thick uneven tip) was really 'to spec'. So I emailed Selmer customer service. Here's a picture of it: And here's the reply: Après vérification avec notre Chef...
  4. Cases
    Why don’t we have any cool cases for a decent price? Anyone know of a case maker like G&G, but for saxophones? I like the look of lacquered tweed, or leather boxes, like the original Vanguards. Conn-Selmer used to make a nice black vanguard case that the Paris horns came with in the early...
  5. Bb Tenor
    As much as I really like my 7* Link, it doesn’t really fit every scenario I want to play in. I understand 10ms are very picky with their mouthpieces, so I figured I’d ask you guys what mouthpieces usually go well with the 10m as to avoid buying one that won’t get along with the horn. (I heard...
  6. Selmer (Paris)
    Hi all, I recently purchased a newly overhauled MKVI tenor (111xxx) and have a couple of questions. Both pertain to me using it as a classical horn too, because I enjoy the feel and tone of the MKVI so much. First, when playing certain notes (low d up to g) at a ppp dynamic, the instrument...

    Here is a video with animated explanations that show the different elements of a 5-digit Mark VI compared to the SA-80ii, along with a play test using the same music.
  8. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    Well, file this one under FUBAR. This should be fun! I've never posted any before and after pics here on SOTW and I thought it would be as good a time as any to start documenting. This horn spent "Quite some time" under water according to the owner. It looks like it may have belonged to Jack...
  9. Embouchure & Tone Producing Basics
    I'm in high school, and it's my first year playing the sax. That might be why. I got a new mouthpiece (Rico alto 3c) and ligature (Rovner dark 1rl). I'm having more issues than I used to, and I can make low notes with a rolled lower lip. The problem is, when I use the lower lip embouchure, my...

  11. Bb Tenor
    Hello sax fiends, I've got two tenors that I am looking to sell. A Selmer Bundy tenor and a Yamaha YTS-61. Question 1) Where can I sell them on here? I looked for about an hour to find the correct forum. Question 2) Anyone have ideas on fair prices for said instruments? The YTS-61 was...
  12. Baritone mpc
    Hi, SOTW! I've been revising my hardware a little, have sold some stuff out of the accumulated collection, and am looking for some recommendations. For my baritone, I'm playing a well worn Conn 12M saxophone. Mouthpieces I have and like: Otto Link Tone Edge (hard rubber) 7. Guy Hawkins...
  13. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    For the past couple of months, I've been playing a Selmer AS 100 sparingly (I play bari for all organized events), and have had mixed feelings about it. I really enjoy the lower register of the horn, but feel differently about the upper registers, and the resistance of the overall playing...
  14. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi, SOTWers- I'm in high school and have been playing alto sax for about seven years. I guess you could call me an advanced intermediate player. Currently I use a Selmer La Voix II alto sax which I've had for about 5 years. My mouthpiece is a V16 a6 and my reeds are java red 3's (I've tested a...
  15. Selmer (Paris)
    Hi! I got a 68xxx «British» mark vi alto (It has the «London stamp» on it») and have some questions related to it. (I know that all the mark vi’s were manufactured in France.) Did the mark vi’s for the british market got assembled, laquered and engraved in the UK, or was all of this done at the...

    I was dinking around in my room and thought I'd toss this out into the ether... Gentle or Gentile criticisms are welcome, while harsh heavy handed ones are welcome but with a squinty eye and probably associated with a light family curse. https://youtu.be/O5Cnsjeo9L4
  18. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    First of all, I know this happens to others, but not all so I don't feel we need to go there in the discussion. I just want to know why for some, but not for all Selmer saxes play sharp. OK here are the facts: I've owned 3 Selmers in my life time, a Modele 26, a Mark VI and a Mark VII. All...
  19. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I'm thinking of selling my Mark VI Alto (#1621xx, 1968). It's quite unusual in a couple of ways. I bought it when I was in Paris and was able to bring it into the US personally without any damage or disfigurement whatsoever to the horn. It also has no engraving on the bell except for the...
  20. SOTW Member Recordings & Reviews
    Here's another tune from my new cd "Shout-out!" . I wrote this one for the great Lou Donaldson. I would describe this as sort of an altered boogaloo blues with a bridge..AABA form. Again I'm on my 73xxx Selmer Mark VI, Otto Link Florida No USA 9* and Roberto's Winds 3M reed. Thanks for checking...
