Its funny, I'm warming up for a gig on tenor by playing classical Clarinet? I'd guess that I'd say the emb muscles for playing Clarinet and the air pressure needed really have improved my Sax. Also, for whatever reason I can play a clarinet for 2 hours and its easier on my hands/back than a tenor. How about for you guys ? K

I like playing on clarinet because there is a lot less room for error. your hands have to be in the right spot or else you might not get the notes you want. Playing clarient has seriously tightened up my sax playing.

Precisely the benefit I have gotten (pun intended).

voicing, breath support, throat opening, aesthetical "education" as to how one should produce a better tone.
