tuning

  1. Tone Producing & Embouchure
    I would like to play in tune. I'm having difficulty understanding what this means, and I would greatly appreciate hearing from those of you who do understand. Here's a summary of what I think I know, and what difficulties and questions I have. Equal temperament is how pianos and my electronic...
  2. Acoustics
    Several threads on SOTW have discussed the "pitch slotting" property of certain saxophone models (i.e. the tendency to resist pitch adjustments away from the fingered pitch). I have chosen to create a new "slotting" thread because previous discussions veered away from the topic or were focused...
  3. Multi Sax!
    Hello fellow sax playa's! I have a question and am also looking for hints, tips and some advice. I play alto and sop in my band and gigs outside are not usually a problem but in cooler to chilly indoor theatre's I have a bit of a problem keeping the sop in tune after being on the alto for 2-3...

When I play a G two different tuners register the note as an A/A# (depending of course where the mouthpiece sits). It's been a while since I have played and don't remember fingering a G and it coming out as an...
  7. Yamaha
    Sorry for the lack of 'expertise', my daughter plays, not me. Please bear with me if the terminology is a bit off. I decided to purchase an upgrade for my 16 sax playing daughter. I bouhgt her a used Bundy-II when she first started nearly 6 years ago. I had heard that the YAS-23 was a very good...
  8. Monique and DC Pro
    My band teacher is selling a black-lacquer DC Pro Series II alto. It's very nice looking and since he's been a professional saxophonist for something like 30 years I trust him enough to give it a try. It is mostly brand-new, owned for 3 months and then when its original owner passed away it...
