Hello! I've been playing Tenor Saxophone for 5 years now and I am curious about a good investment. I currently have an Allora Intermediate Series Tenor and I would like to have a more permanent investment saxophone.
Another topic I would like to know more about is a good Soprano Saxophone investment since if you don't buy a good one, repairs can get quite expensive!
Hello Saxophone community! The topic of discussion is the hardest piece you have ever played. This can include any piece you have attempted to play or have played in the past as long as it was on a saxophone. Make sure to include the name of the piece along with who composed it. You can also include a piece you are currently learning!
So today, I just got my brand new bari :,). It was totally amazing but I found that the tone quality on the upper octave G to B sounded like they totally had an air leak. The sound just dipped in sound, and an audible leaky sound was coming though. I know there isn't really an issue with the rest of the bari but the notes sound so weak and undesirable. Any ways to fix this?
P.S: The octave mechanics seems to be fine, since the first octave closes shut when the other is activated and vice versa.
EDIT: When the air rushes out of the octave openings, it hits against the pads, making an airy, thin sound. I think this effect is similar to what happens when you whistle, but bring a finger close to the opening of your lips, making a weakened, airy sound. What do I do?
Can someone please help me play in the lower register of the Alto Saxophone? I can only go to a low b.
I play viola, but today I purchased a violin off of a mutual friend because I also wan't to start learning violin as well.
The person I purchased it off of said she played it in high school, and it shows. It has numerous scratches, but it has a really nice tone.
Anyways, the label inside of it looks something like this:
Handmade in Germany
Any help would be very appreciated!
