  4. Sheet Music & Transcriptions
    So I posted a thread a while ago about struggling to find concerto works I wanted to perform, and I found my solution in Paul Harvey's concertino for soprano saxophone and orchestra. I had my audition yesterday and have been asked to inform them of the orchestration so they can figure out if it...
  5. Reeds
    I've played tenor reeds on alto and bari reeds on tenor and found both to work really well. I'm getting back to playing sop after a year off it and tried a couple of alto reeds yesterday for a bit and found that they give me a darker sound which I liked. Anybody else out there do this and if so...

    Do techs tend not to know that the Yanagisawa dual-neck sopranos are made to operate with the neck receiving the octave mechanism on the side? I brought an S-880 to a tech with a new (very used) curved neck, which the tech said was incapable of being corrected. I also had an S-991 curved neck...

    I'm a highschool player and I recently picked up the soprano this summer and I practiced quite a bit at the beginning then stopped for awhile because of marching season, and now I am practicing it everyday. I started out using a Rousseau NC4 on my Custom EX but then I switched to a Selmer...
  9. Sax Repair, Maintenance and Modification
    For the past 40 years I've owned & played on a 1926 Buescher TT Series II straight soprano sax, s/n 196xxx. Recently I discovered a mysterious tone hole covered by a cup & pad, closed by default via needle spring & apparently unaffected by the action of any key on my horn. It's located a...
  10. Bb Soprano
    I am thinking about purchasing a new soprano. And I would welcome any opinions of the horns I am considering. My current soprano is the Antigua 3286, which is the only soprano I've ever had. It has 2 necks, a feature which I like because I have preferred the curved neck on this model. I have...
  11. Bb Soprano
    The D buzzes on my sax, no other keys, no other notes...B and Bb are fine, C, C# but the D makes a buzzy sound on my soprano. There's a bit of the bbuzz bleeding through at Eb but nothing like the D buzz. Is there a screw I can turn to fix it? What could it be? Thanks in advance for any insight.
  12. Saxophone Solo and Ensembles

    Our #203 Enhancers set of Side Key Riser-Extensions for Selmer MK VI soprano saxophones underwent important redesigning to simplify its installation and reduce it to a totally elementary and trouble-free procedure that does not require any technical skills. The new design features all screws...
  14. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi folks, I’m new here and looking for some advice to appraise a sax that’s been collecting dust in my closet for awhile. The sax is a vintage “Bel Air” curved soprano (from what I understand, this is a model of Dolnet). Serial number reads E9XXX. It was donated to me in some rather odd...
  15. Bb Soprano
    Hi everybody I'm on my way to buy a new soprano sax. I currently own a Yamaha 475 which has a removed high f# key and is in rather bad condition. I've done a lot of digging and ended up with a list of saxes, that I would consider buying. Sadly it's impossible for me to test all of them (I have...
  16. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Correct me if I am wrong but the concert pitch of the soprano sax mouthpiece is a C correct? Because when I play on the mouthpiece respectively I play an F# with embouchure and a D without an embouchure. Currently using a Rousseau Nc4 mpc with daddario 3.5 reed. Update:Thanks for the feedback, I...
  17. Manufacturing/ Construction
    Hi! After a 15-year hiatus, I'm getting back to an old experiment, just for sh*ts & giggles: A PVC soprano sax. Keyed. Already succeeded once with a clarinet during my poor man's college days, not having an instrument to copy at the time, so the design was purely theoretical, even the working...
  18. Multi Sax!
    I am placing this story in case anyone else is considering a similar action. I have two locations. In Buenos Aires the walls are thick and the downtown noise drowns out my practicing, so I can do my thing until about 11:00 at night. But in Orange County California, the walls are thin and the...
  19. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    Hey guys, I was hoping I could get some advice regarding whether the metal link or yanagisawa is more suited to the soprano sax. I currently use a 7* NY NSTM link on my Yani T992, which I personally love and seems to work well with my more mellow tone, and had considered getting something...
