    Hi there, Thanks for your help with getting a mouthpiece for classical music. I found a used Vandoren T20 that works great by means of the flexibility for getting a round and dark tone when I want it. I have a used Vandoren Optimum ligature for it that came with a pressure plate that has 4 dots...

    Hi there, I have a Berg Larsen metal 100/1 tenor mouthpiece that is refaced by Brian Powell. It sounds easier to player now (refaced to 0.101). It seals like crazy but at the same time I feel I like to have a bit more free blowing experience without reducing the strength of the reed when the...
  3. Solo Performer
    So, I'm going into high school and I play alto and bari saxophone. I placed 2nd out of 22 the saxophones. I am looking for a good classical solo that will really show my true skill (I am going to be playing on bari). Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
  4. High School and College
    Hey guys! :) I run/play in a saxophone ensemble at my high school. I'm looking for songs to play next year, and need suggestions. We are pretty darn good, so skill level is not a concern. Just any songs that sound awesome as a small sax group. Thanks in advance for any suggestions
  5. Baritone mpc
    This is broad but I'm looking for some suggestions to help me narrow down a bari piece I should get... I've been looking at RPC's, Bergs, Lambersons, Drakes etc... All sound great from the descriptions. Ideally I'd love to get a metal berg but they seem so inconsistent I'm afraid to drop the...
  6. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    So I'm brand new to this forum and I'm glad I signed up, because I'm lost. I'm looking around for a new tenor sax and the only ones I seem to be able to find are the OPUS USA models. I'm looking for a relatively cheap sax (anywhere from $400-$1500) and a step above beginner (not professional)...

    Hello there, I was using Rico Royal 2.5 on my tenor saxophone with a Otto Link STM 7* mouthpiece. My Otto Link had just a tad of edge and I wanted sometimes that plays lots of edge while having a good control of pianissimo so I got a vintage Berg Larsen SS that is modified to 85/0. It has a lot...
  8. American School
    Hello! I recently bought an alto Buescher Aristocrat sax at a garage sale and I was wondering what mouthpiece you would recommend to play on it. I curently use my E. Rousseau but I was just wondering what someone else would use/recommend. Thanks!
  9. Eb Alto
    I am a Freshmen in high school and have been playing Alto since 6th grade, and I am looking for an upgrade under $3,000. I am currently playing on what I do believe is a Yamaha YAS-200AD, which is valued at like $600 I think. My private instructor Ron Jones suggested for me to get something in...
  10. Tenor mpc
    I am planning to buy a new tenor HR piece, and I am wondering if you guys have any suggestions (under $250)? Personally, I consider myself to be tonally flexible, but I prefer pieces on the brighter side. But not overly bright. I like Joshua Redman's sound on the album he recorded with...
  11. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    Hi Everyone, I've played alto sax for four years now, and I'm thinking about getting a soprano to play. I'm kinda overwhelmed bu the brands and the different horns. Can anyone suggest a certain good sax for a reasonable price? I would like a good quality one that has a great sound. Thanks!
