I have a Yamaha YTS-82Z Custom, and it does not have a lyre holder on it.
I would like to be able to play it in my marching band, and so im wondering if anyone knows if there is another solution that I can use to get a lyre on there without having to weld a lyre holder on the sax. :?

Are there some snap on lyres? Or other ways to manage this?

Thanks for any help!

I'd have thought an enterprising company would make a snap on lyre, it's worth Yahooing (most people Google - I Yahoo to be different!).

Or... how far are the Japanese along with the glasses that are like a PC monitor but you can still see where you're walking? Or... get a baseball cap and attach some rods protuding from the front and some pegs to hold some music on it. Or... Get a music stand and attach it to a belt you wear round your waist or chest, similar to the baseball cap idea. Or... I think that'll do for now! :dazed:

Please don't take this wrong but,

1. Unless you're marching to Souza, Fillmore or the like, the music is probably pretty easy to memorize.

2. Why take a pro horn out in the weather? I have a bundy for marching.

1. Memorize music? Uggh, I have enough problems playing the music. Forget about memorizing it as well.:x And most of our marches *are* Sousa.

2. I can only afford one horn.

3. Fortunately for me, when our band 'marches', we ride on a trailer:shock:

I always tried to get the bandmaster from the Hawaii County Band to let us ride on a trailor. When I was in the band, there was a tuba player that was over 70 (great player, he used to be in the 'President's Own'), a drummer over 70, and a bone player that has been in the band since 1946.

Except for the Xmas parade, we only played one march during parades--'Koni Au'. I didn't even memorize it on purpose!

I just couldn't get myself to march with a Mk VI.

Riding on a standard-height flat bed trailer can be exciting, especially on the tight turns we find in so many hill towns around here, or if the truck has a rough clutch.

The Old Crow community band uses a utility trailer that's very low to the ground. Some folks ride the trailer while others march right next to the trailer. That's a good setup.
