Sorry, I have searched thru the old posts to find something, but the issue is this: I am needed to fill in with a blues band - guitars tuned down to Eflat - I am wondering (limited knowledge) if any uses a large adjustment, pull out on the mouthpiece to tune down? Am playing a Selmer balanced action tenor.

If you also tune down by pulling out your mouthpiece some notes may be in tune, but many other will be way out. So just keep it normal and play in the key everyone else is.

Many saxophone players would be happier to play in Eb rather than E.
