How about, HOW'S IT GOIN',EH?I think you're all missing the point. The point being that it has "NEOTECH" on it. But that really doesn't go far enough for today's discerning saxophonist.
If there was one with ADIDAS on it or possibly BARBOUR then it'd sell like hot cakes. Other good ones would be APPLE or MERCEDES or, [pause] SELMER.
This incarnation claims to improve your tone; with three different settings, no less.it s just a new version of one of the oldest mutes, there is very little new under the sun...
don't they all!........yes probably it could prevent premature.........improvisation!This incarnation claims to improve your tone; with three different settings, no less.
Aha !You must put the ring behind your back, against the chair's back. Then it provides "back pressure".
I think that's a load of horse^&%$. Part of being a good sax player is learning to play soft (and loud, and in between) while maintaining good tone. No 'tone filter' or other device is going to automatically give you a better tone, regardless of the volume."Sax players know that many notes are difficult to play softly and still maintain good tone. Neotech's SAX TONE FILTER™ reduces the volume of air that is allowed through the horn so it is easier to hold good tone even while playing at lower volume."
so basically they're trying to say it'll take less air to play your saxophone?
It would be fine for that purpose. But when I read the description, it was advertised as something to use in performance (help you to blend with other instruments, and play the low notes, etc). I think you need to develop the ability to play dynamically in performance without such a crutch. And no way, no how, can stuffing something in the bell of your sax improve the tone quality!This may be a good think to practice long tones of just to play soft when practicing late at night.. no?
