  1. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Hello SOTW forum posters, I am working on a nice soprano saxophone with the name Comet 204, serial number 16XXX. It looks really nice and it sounds already nice before the overhaul is completed. I think it's quite old and maybe some kind of stencil from a well know brand. Does anyone have an...
  2. CE Winds
    I recently purchased a Ce Winds alpha soprano in vintage finish and haven't found any info on the price and resale value. Anything will help. Thanks!
  3. Yanagisawa
    Hello out there! I am about to sell a Yanagisawa soprano that I bought some twenty years ago in a second hand Music shop. I have only used it myself a few times -the clarinet got most of my attention I'm afraid! I took the "Yani" to a friend who runs a musical instruments repairs shop. We both...
  4. Tips and Techniques
    I love this piece, and Harle does something that sounds like a growl but it's incredibly controlled. He plays the melody once very sweetly, then does this effect. Start at 1'30". I'd love to be able to reproduce that sound one day.
  5. C Melody Soprano, Contralto & Tenor
    Hello, I have in my posession a 1920's/1930's U.S.A made curved soprano saxophone. It is Low Pitch this I know is a fact as it has Low Pitch stamped on it. It is approximately 16 inches in length (i.e measuring from the bow to the top of the crook). Can anyone tell me if this is a 'C' curved...
  6. Altissimo and Multiphonics
    I've been faithfully doing overtones on my alto, thinking that I'd lead up to learning altissimo on alto and only then conquer the soprano. Overtones pop out easily on the alto--a late 50s Beaugnier with a late Selmer Airflow mp opened to a C* (V12 #3), but just getting altissimo F# is a darn...
  7. Classical Saxophone
    So I've been working on this piece for soprano saxophone a bit, and I'm having trouble with a few of the notations. I'm hoping someone will be willing to assist. One is the appearance of a few long notes in a square form with elongated vertical lines. I've never seen that before. The second...
  8. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    Going through the threads I have found only a few references to Gulf horns, including their relationship to the Buffet 400. For the past four or five years I've owned a Venus curved bell soprano, which I bought slightly used in Toronto for $375, to start my return to playing after 45+ years...
  9. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    I'm working on some stuff which I thought might benefit from a nasally soprano voice, so I contacted Joe. I ended up with an Open Sky 2. Here's the feedback I sent him: Joe, Thank you for the piece. All of my saxophone hours have gone into it over the last couple of weeks, and this is all I've...
  10. Rampone & Cazzani
    I have an opportunity to purchase one at a 'decent' price. I'm going military here, don't ask, don't tell. To the R & C saxello players here, what made you decide on this horn instead of a 'normal' straight or curved sop??
  11. Selmer (Paris)
    Hi Do any other players of Selmer SAII soprano sax find that they are constantly having to blow moisture out of the octave hole just below the mouthpiece? Has any one found a DIY solution for this problem? I'm trying a rubber band around the bore between mouthpiece and octave pip to act as a...
  12. Soprano, Bass and Misc. mpc
    The reason I ask is that it didn't come with one, and it's larger than most metal pieces, but smaller than most rubber pieces, so none of the ligs I tried have fit. I've been using some 12 gauge copper wire wrapped around multiple times, and pushed on until snug. That ain't ideal, since I...
  13. Bb Soprano
    Hi! I'm primarily a bassist. Been playing for almost 30 years, but started on guitar and clarinet around age 10. Took up alto sax for jazz band in junior high, and tried tenor in high school but didn't care for it. Continued playing clarinet through college, but not sure how much I really...
