I recently purchased a cheap Taishan Baritone Saxophone. It plays surprisingly well and I'm definitely satisfied. One issue I have is that the roller key on the Low C key is missing so it's almost impossible to roll from low Eb to C. Does anyone have any idea where I can get...
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.
My local music store somehow acquired a lightly used Taishan bari sax.
I figured it was a great opportunity to try one out, rather than sending money to an unknown ebay seller.

I offered $370
He counter offered $448
I offered $390
I hear more bad than good about them, but I really need a curved soprano and do not have 2 grand to drop on one. Nor would I want a $2K horn for this kind of work. There are some vids of people playing these super cheap horns and some of them don't sound terrible, but I'm more worried about...
I am a tenor sax player wanting to play bari sax badly. The only problem is I don't own a bari and the school has two but the nicer and newer one is already taken by a junior (its a Buffet bari, I don't know the model because she won't let anybody near it) and the other one is barely playable...
After reading some of the reviews on the Taishan Bari's I thought I would look into how well Taishans are built.
I had an opportunity to pick up a used soprano at a decent price and it arrived today.
Pulled it out of it's case and the 'feel' is a little toy-ish......not sure how to really...
