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 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!
