hi Chico, usually the setup depends on what type of music youre gonna play. The only person who can tell you that is you. cheers.
Chico, do you mean "set up", as in which mouthpiece/reed combination should you choose?---this seems to be what the previous replies refer to--OR do you mean "adjustment"? Generally, it is advisable that your newly arrived horn be thoroughly checked out for leaks, spring problems, whatever, since, even if it is totally checked out before leaving the factory, conditions of transient can throw things off. A good dealer will have this done before handing off the horn to you, but it's good if you ask if this was done and by whom--you want this check out done by a competant tech.Chico222 said:Hey guys as some of you know I got a sexy, good-looking, beautiful, shiny, glistening.....well you get the idea YAS-82Z on the way.
I keep reading on previous posts about getting it "set-up", is that really necessary? I don't really know what it is or how to determine if a sax needs a set-up, I figure since it's brand new it should be in good playing condition.
Can you please advice?
Chico, If you let us know where you are, most likely someone on this forum can point you to a competant tech in your area. You might try posting a query in the sax repair and maintenance section of this forum. Someone there should be able to assist you.Chico222 said:Thanks gear, yeah I'm going to have it checked over. It actually WAS an internet dealer, (samash.com) now all I have to do is find a competent tech.
Thanks alto, I'm in denver, co. I'm gonna go ahead and post in the repair section as soon as I have the horn in my hands, which I was told will be Tuesday INSTEAD of Friday:xAltoRuth said:Chico, If you let us know where you are, most likely someone on this forum can point you to a competant tech in your area.
