    We're baa-aaaack! Super 20 players, stand up and be counted. Super 20 tenor, 364xxx, silver neck, brass bell, no pearls on the side :( I've had this horn since 1974 (sophomore year high school). Dad paid $75 for the horn, then another $100 for a complete overhaul/relacquer (it needed...

    Great Sellers with Whom to Deal!

    Thread Starter: Sax Magic

    I thought it might be a good idea to gather up a thread with all of the recommended sellers that folks have had the pleasure with whom to do business. These recommendations often come at the end of long threads and are not seen again. I'll start the ball rolling. I have had many transactions...

    why don't we go back to A=432 Herz ?

    Thread Starter: toughtenor

    I just read an article claiming that the most "natural" tuning is A=432 Herz. Interesting but it is going against the trend of tuning even higher to 442 Herz I read somewhere on the SOTW (and some other sources as well) that it was NAZI minister Goebbels in 1938 who proposed the retuning to...

  • Dexter Gordon in Finland 1971

    As a young guy I was lucky to meet and photograph Dexter Gordon when he was playing a gig in Finland, Vaasa Youth Festival on 19 June 1971. Dexter is still one of my favorite sax players.

    More jazzy pictures from the festival in my blog: http://wp.me/p1jVlh-f2.

    Re: Rebuild or Replace?

    There is absolutely no way I'd ever sell the KHS. My Mum & Dad bought it for $500 from Cash Converters after a close friend & mentor (who later passed away from cancer) spotted it. It has way too...

    Re: Rebuild or Replace?

    I think replacing would be best personally, although finding a horn that matches your horn's sound may be difficult since you seem very close to the KHS.
    I'm not sure of the WA shops but I'd spend...
