Have played tenor for 20 years and just purchased a new Mauriat 76 soprano. Just one problem, on low D E and F notes liable to break up. Horn has been checked so problem is with me or the mouthpiece/reed. Mouthpiece is Selmer c * and have tried 2/2.5 reeds. Strangely problem disappears if I use cheap mouthpiece that came with sax but tone is too stuffy/dull to use. Any recommendations for new mouthpiece please

probably should start by trying a harder reed-at least a 3.

Do you mean this article mojo?

I can't figure out how to set the search function to return articles (even when I say search for articles vs posts), and this popped up in a google search
Lamplight,
there are articles and articles. The search box in the navigation bar refers to articles within the vBulletin contents. I.e. on the page: http://forum.saxontheweb.net/content.php

Whereas the original write-ups by Paul Coats, Tim Price and others can be found using the search box next to the logo on the top of page (Google Custom Search). That will cover all Sax on the Web contents. E.g. for Paul Coats.
