    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. https://www.instagram.com/p/BPxUdj1F0KC/

    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. http://jazzbrospodcast.libsyn.com/

    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...

    Hello all. Here is my latest song/video I've been working on. The song is an original called "What Matters Most". It's a funky little instrumental number, featuring alto flute, bass clarinet, tenor sax, bari sax, bass sax, trumpet and trombone, along with a rhythm section. I hope you enjoy...
  8. Selmer (Paris)
    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...

    Nothing too fancy here. Just some down home, gutbucket, finger wigglin' tenor. I'm on my Mark Vi 105xxx, my Link 9* and a Roberto's Winds reed. He has a shop here in NYC that is the home of the "Mark VI Room."

  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.
