Others may give better advice re your specific question but I think posture will be more significant than the actual weight of the sax if you have back problems etc, All the best.
Heavier than your Lady Face? I thought you got rid of the old lady face and have a new one?:scratch: Age isn't catching up with you. It's sitting in front of you laughing its **** off!gary said:Have you folks played a lot of tenors each?
I'm asking because I have a JK and it feels noticeably heavier than the Z I used to play. However I asked Dino Govini yesterday to play my tenor and afterwards I asked him if he felt a difference between my JK and his Z and he didn't. Maybe age is finally catching up with me? :scratch: but I swear it feels heavier than my Z or Lady face (talking tenors here).
I agree with this. My 156 is noticeably lighter than my MKVI and also lighter than the earlier "series one" Aristocrat. I seem to recall that a King Super 20 I tried once (with the brass bell) was also noticeably lighter than my Selmer.Swingtone said:156 (and later) Bueschers are the lightest tenors I've played.
