    I just picked up this tenor and I got to say it can play some blues. Not a Selmer, but a different animal altogether. It's an 875 in black lacquer (not an 875 EX ) the older model. Obviously hardly played before, it's like new. I had a couple of these in the past that I thought were real solid...

    Here's an etude I wrote based on the chord progression to Yardbird Suite. It's in the tenor key. Hopefully no typos! Here's an instagram video of me playing it.

    I know that this is a new company but I am extremely impressed with their quality. Not only is this probably one of the most beautiful horns I've ever encountered but it's tone is amazing as well. It has a matte finish but it has the option of a brass neck and copper neck( I can upload pics...

    What's up guys? I'm starting a podcast and to kick it off I interviewed John Petrucelli -- a great tenor player in the Pittsburgh area. He starts off talking about his background, and then we cover three recent recordings he did.

    Gentlemen of SOTW, I recently purchased my new Barone Classic Tenor a few months ago as a back up horn for gigging. When I first got the horn i noticed that it played incredibly out of tune, on the order of 30-40c sharp The only way to remedy that it was to either pull the mouthpiece out so far...

    Hey guys, Im pretty new to Selmers and have no experience dealing with them. I stumbled across this ad and it is completely unbelievable! Im pretty sure this is fake just because of the price, But I did also notice using Selmers post about fake Saxophones here...

    So, I play clarinet right now in my high school band. My band director is having me learn the tenor sax over the summer, but I don't know much about it. For instance, what key signature is the tenor sax? Is it treble or bass clef? Can anyone out there help me so I know these things and other...
  10. Misc. Saxophone Manufacturers
    I have just purchased an Agility Winds tenor saxophone from Tempest Musical Instruments in Texas. My previous horn was a Buffet SuperDynaction with a serial number of 7197. It had reached the end of the line and required a complete overhaul. This would require a huge outlay of cash which would...

  16. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Got a very old box of 2-1/2 Rico with an old tenor (closet horn) I bought recently. Only tried one but the tone was very dull and they taste like cellar dust. Is it worth trying more? Or should I just put them up on ebay, see if a collector wants them? They are "V cut" whatever the hell that...
  17. Bb Tenor
    Is it possible to get my Buescher 1951 Aristocrat Series III post Big B tenor sax to look and sound like it originally did? It has a few dents and scratches, a few bad soldering jobs and the lacquer is very patchy.
