  1. General Discussion
    As a beginner (again) and 6 months in, I'm learning that there is a connection between the player and the sax that is not often mentioned. I'm curious if many of the teachers and pro players on this forum agree. I've been spending a lot of time trying to learn specific songs but not having the...
  2. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Recently I acquired a Selmer Soloist D for tenor, and I am absolutely in love with it. It feels really comfortable for me in both jazz and symphonic settings, whereas I used to switch between a Link STM 7* and an s80 C*.

  4. Tenor mpc
    I extended my sax collection ( sop & alto) with a tenor sax. On my vintage Beaugnier sop I use a tone edge 8*. My tenor is also a Beaugnier (Noblet).

    Hi everybody, I play lead alto sax in my local woodwind band (harmonie in Dutch) i play a SA80II from the early 90`s I`ve been told. And my mouthpiece (as the title states) is an S80 C* from maybe the same year or likely to be even older. but my concern is that it`s worn out. the tip rail...
  8. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    (alto #6) seems to make my overall tone less bright, and make me play more in tune (don't have to push my mouthpiece all the way in like I did with my old #5). perhaps playing in the high register is a little more stable too. anyone have any comments? is this just an individual thing? or...
