Actually it's not ambiguous. It says that the alto is squeaky and weird. However, nobody believes that's what he means.Tom Goodrick said:Your statement is ambiguous. Which is squeaky and weird - the alto? Most have assummed it is the sop that is squeaky and weird. In that case work on the alto for a few more years. Try the sop later. To play the sop, you must have already developed a good sense of intonation in band situations because your ear is a vital part of the instrument. You must have developed some sense of living with a reed and of using your mouth to produce a good tone. You can do all this on an alto. Stay with the alto.
thank you, that helped. I just need to know the correcet embucher nowsycc said:It will take trime to sound good on sop. It took me 2 months to sound good on my s-80 series 2 selmer sop. Once you master it, you will remember what you do w/ embouchure to sound good. I can leave my sop sit awhile but when I eventually play it again I automatically adjust to it!!!Selmer super session mthpcs are reputed to be great for sops.
I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and say the squeaking and other problems might be the mouthpiece. I just received my Belcrest soprano today from Bruce Bailey and he threw in some old reeds and substituted a Rousseau 4 for the stock mouthpiece.JazzItUp said:Thanks enviroguy!
Haha that's pretty funny, I hate snakes! I'm not sure what soprano sax this is, but I have a metal mouthpiece and a rubber one for it. The rubber is basic. At this point, no sound is coming out of it as I blow! Now I am mad! This is hard!
