I was wondering what the most common saxophone variant is, whether is be soprano, alto, tenor, or baritone. Can you tell me your type.
I can't decide if I should switch to Baritone or Tenor Sax, or if I should stay an Alto Sax. Can you help me decide
Hy guys, I play Alto Sax and I'm 14. I play it since I was 10 but I don't feel any improve in technique since 1 year ago. I was wondering how I improve. Thanks for who answers me!
The local music store here, Groth Music (Also the biggest music store in Minnesota) has three different professional tenor sax models for sale, at least that’s what shows on their website. If they have more, I’ll look into it. For now, I just want to know if there are opinions.
The options are:
Selmer Paris Professional Model 54JU Tenor Saxophone
Selmer Paris Professional Model 84 Tenor Saxophone
Yamaha YTS-82ZII Custom Z Tenor Saxophone
Btw, I’m leaning towards the Custom Z because I want one with black lacquer so I can look cool at school :P
Heya, I'm bringing this problem to the saxes of Musescore because I'm too lazy to make an account for another website and I have a marching band performance on Memorial Day coming up fast. (Just to clarify, this issue is on my tenor.)
So, I've had this problem for my entire time playing saxophone and I've mostly gotten around it with my embouchure, but it's gotten worse. If I try to play G or G#, it squeaks. Quite badly. Just today I noticed that if I kind of focus that squeak, it's actually a really bad palm key Eb, so I was wondering if it was a palm key leak or something else. I did also notice that several of the pads on the palm keys of my (I believe it's a YTS-26? I'll edit the post if it isn't) tenor saxophone were quite a bit out of alignment, especially the high F key, which was several millimeters off center. So, I was wondering if it is a key alignment issue or something else. Any suggestions?
Edit: The palm keys are also really loose on the tone holes, so that won't help. I was thinking of messing with the leaf springs, but I'm no professional. (Finally, that 4th grade science project on levers will help me)
I was thinking of getting a new mouthpeice for bari sax and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I really want a jazz mouthpeice, preferbly metal.
Mine is either the Bari or the Alto saxophone. :)
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.
Got questions about music, instruments, brand names, more?
Fellow members will try to answer them to the best of their ability.
(Life advice is fine as well, I suppose)
Are you a beginner, intermediate, or advanced in piano playing?
I am looking for some translation for alto sax of following songs:
Conan the Barbarian - Recovery
Stan Bush - On my own alone
Jerry Goldsmith / Rambo - It’s a long road
Or any songs of basil poledouris.
If any can help out that would be great !
If you do, would you like to share it with the group? Assuming we get a group?
A friend and I are seniors in high school and we have a band. I play alto saxophone and he plays drum set. We have played at basketball games, in school concerts, and background music at various school events. Our next (and possibly last) performance is going to be at our graduation, so obviously we want it to be our best performance yet. Our problem is we cannot seem to find a good song/songs to play. We are looking for something fast, upbeat, and fun. Somewhere between 3 to 15 minutes would be perfect. Some of the songs we have played before include: Shipping Up To Boston, Megalovania, Blue (Da Ba Dee), 300 Violin Orchestra, Harder Better Faster Stronger, Eye Of The Tiger, ect. Hopefully that gives you a good idea of the type of music we enjoy playing.
Any song suggestions would be very helpful. Also, if you have any other places I could post this question please let me know. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone gives.
