  2. Tenor mpc
    I’m looking for someone to help me identify the rough age of an older Tone Edge Tenor piece that I have. I’m aware that the straight sig. pieces were made first in Florida and then Indiana, from various moulds, and finished with differing baffles - and that the evolution of Tone Edges wasn’t...
  3. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    I bought these tenors at a very reasonable price (not bargain though) and now I`m going to overhaul one of them. Grassi is form late 80s, has lacquered body and nickel plated keys, there is some acid bleed near the body to bow joint but the overall appearance is very nice. The SML is from early...
  4. Multi Sax!
    Hello, I currently own three instruments - a soprano sax, a tenor sax, and a clarinet. The soprano to me is the most fun to play and I spend the most time on it, though I am aware it lacks the versatility of the other instruments. My favourite music to play is Dixieland/Traditional jazz...

    I'm hoping someone with specific experience on New Wonder series 1 tenors can comment on this. I would still consider myself a beginner but have been playing for ~6 years now and working on overtone exercises for a while with a goal of first getting altissimo G to sound at all with the goal...
  6. Keilwerth/H-Couf
    Hello everyone, Could anyone help me identify those mouthpieces? The seller is saying they are made in Germany but didn't give other infos on them. I bought a Keilwerth new king with a very similar ligature as those in the picture. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!
  7. Bb Tenor
    So I've recently switched from alto to tenor. I've played alto for about 5ish year's but feel like I'm ready to move on. I've started renting a tenor and immediately I've noticed that in the second octave, notes play with a fairly bold overtone of the octave below (although IDK if overtones are...
  8. Pads and Resonators
    Hey saxo lovers! Here is Pat Luneau from Montréal, Qc. CAN. I'm about to repad a tenor Armstrong ELKHART-IND USA sax (N170XXX) and I'm not quite sure what pad set I should get to fit this horn... I'm presently looking on Musicmedic.com for a set : Replacement Pad sets for Tenor Saxophone...
  9. Classical Saxophone
    Hi hi guys, the time has come for me to start constructing my final year recital, a 40 minute programme. My teacher has encouraged me to look outside the box when it comes to standard classical repertoire and have a look at new, innovative, obscure, not as well known and generally interesting...
  10. Cases
    Hi Everybody, For years I knew that the alto version of the Bam softpack comes with 2 backpack straps, and the tenor comes with only one. According to the description on their website, it seems like Bam added the 2nd backpack strap to their tenor softpack case - making it one of (or the only?)...
  11. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
    Has anyone compared these two tenor mouthpieces?: Phil-Tone The Intrepid vs Drake Reso tenor. I'm looking for a new mouthpiece and considering one of these. What is your experience on these? How do they compare in tone, responsiveness, versatility, loudness, edge and darkness of sound?
  12. Tenor mpc
    Hi, I am trying a Slant Tone Edge (seems and was told is vintage), which sounds incredible despite chipped tip. While trying to identify the piece, there are two aspects that are intriguing and I have not been able to find an answer to explain them despite extensive search. First , it has a...
  13. Yamaha
    Hi all, I am in the market for a tenor saxophone after a long break (too long!) from the horn. A reputable dealer in my area has three horns that are within my budget and that interest me. I'm pretty sure that I could make an appointment to try them out (they're just an hour from my home), but...
  14. Selmer (Paris)
    Hi all, I recently purchased a newly overhauled MKVI tenor (111xxx) and have a couple of questions. Both pertain to me using it as a classical horn too, because I enjoy the feel and tone of the MKVI so much. First, when playing certain notes (low d up to g) at a ppp dynamic, the instrument...
  15. Misc. Saxophone Discussion
    Hi All, I'm a woodwind tech based in Atlanta GA. I'm overhauling a '67 King Super 20 Silversonic Tenor and am trying to source some missing parts to complete the job. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find key guard feet for low Eb & C as well as key guard screws. Thanks in advance. I...

    Hi all. I don't get nearly as much time as I'd like to do these - but here's a classic ballad (thanks to Dexter of course - esp for the ending!) on my lovely 1940s Conn 10M with an STM Florida USA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sONKqUPwVPs All the best to you all, Tim
  17. Conn
    Good day I have a question to people who had a chance to compare two Conn 10m tenors How do you like the toaster rack edition from 1934-35 (has no 10m stamp above) vs regular prewar 10m? I had a chance to compare them and found that the ones with regular keyguard weigh less while the toaster...
  18. Reeds
    So I'm an intermediate sax player and I recently got a P Mauriat Le Bravo 200 Tenor and I've been loving it! I decided to try out the reed that it comes with and I actually ended up loving it for getting more of a centered sound (though it is a bit squeaky sometimes). Does anyone know what...
  19. Bb Tenor
    Hi everyone! I'm on a hunt for a solid tenor. I'm finished my classical saxophone masters last year, my main instrument is alto (Selmer III). I played a lot of tenor at my university (Selmer II) and now I want to buy something on my own. I also play some jazz/funk/rock, so what I'm looking for...
  20. Advice on Buying or Selling a Saxophone
    After trying to research the subject for quite a while, I have hit the wall. My question is: how would you say the old vintage horns compare to the new models. Please don't get confused by the word "vintage". I think there is a modern model called "vintage". That's not what I mean. I've heard...
