Here, there are no saxophones costing $75 ( perhaps with the exception of the indian SSO) anywhere
LOL I think he was talking about mouth pieces, not saxophones. Mouth pieces, like saxophones, can perform well with out being expensive. For the record, if I were gigging all the time at top shelf places making good money, I would no doubt own a Yani with a Theo Wanne The point has never been "if high priced gear is good" but if one can be good without high priced gear.Here, there are no saxophones costing $75 ( perhaps with the exception of the indian SSO) anywhere
Not me. I own 3 mpcs for my tenor. A Yamaha 4C which is what everyone starts with, a RPC rollover baffle that’s all I play, and a .115” RPC high baffle that I rarely play. I’m not a mouthpiece kind of guy. I heard a lot of good stuff about Ron Coelho’s pieces about 12 years ago, called him and asked him to make me a piece. He did and that’s the one I have stuck with. I bought the high baffle piece from a guy here on SOTW. It’s a good piece but not for me. I may sell it if I decide to get rid of it.Ha, I literally know nothing about mouth pieces save where to stick them. Care to share some knowledge?
