    Re: What's Your Favorite Lacquer?

    My favourite lacquer is a simple clear lacquer.

    But my favourite finish is a nice shiny silver plate.
  2. Re: Jazz Studies--Will a YTS-23 get me through college? *VIDEO*

    Especially with that playing, there's no reason why you need to rush into getting a "pro" horn. There's a tenor player at my college who played a YTS 23 until his junior year. He saved up money from...
  3. Rubber Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece Recommendations

    So I was just cleared to borrow my college's SBA (officially just for the summer, but since I am now the eldest student who needs to borrow a Tenor, probably for the rest of my time here). I figured...

    Re: Jazz Sax Teachers in Northern VA?

    My recommendation is Darryl Brenzel, who's teaching at my college while my normal sax professor is on leave. If you're looking for jazz, this really is your guy. He played with the Army Jazz...
  6. Conn New Wonder Series 1 Value w/ damaged neck

    So I have a Conn New Wonder S1 Alto that I want to sell. The finish is in good condition, and the pads are in good shape (but not original). The only problem is the neck. It's got the matching serial...

    Re: What Affects Saxophone Sound the Most?

    Beyond the player and his/her embouchure, I say the mouthpiece, provided that the reed is of good quality and the right strength.

    Re: hitting a saxophone with a bat

    it could be a 20-year-old bundy II that's only good for parts and it wouldn't deserve that kind of treatment.

    fat/dumbasses like him should be lynched, IMHO

    Re: Yas 23

    Yes, a nice hard rubber mouthpiece (i.e. Selmer S80 or Vandoren Optimum for classical work) would be a good investment and see if that helps. as far as horns are concerned I would probably say a Phil...

    Yani 992 vs Kessler Handmade, etc.

    So.

    I own a Yani A992. Love it absolutely to death. There's something about the bronze that just warms up the sound and it just sings. I say the same about the bronze for the Yani T992, and I...
  13. Re: Played a couple of Cannoballs this weekend vs. Couf Superba 1

    When I was testing altos before getting my Yani I played a good number of CBs. The Stone series was definately nice and bright and projected like nothing else. The only problem I found with them was...

    Re: What professional Tenor should I get???

    YANAGISAWA!! Don't get me wrong, I'm all for people trying every sax and picking the best match, but I really like me some Yanagisawa saxes, and I find that they are often just ruled out in favor of...

    Re: Vandoren V12 Issues

    Don't think it's just the V12's. I got a box of each Trads, V12s, Java Reds, and V16s (needed both alto and tenor reeds), and the consistency was bad across the board
  16. Re: Need an alto for college, don't know which I should get

    Yanagisawa. I'm going in as a Music Major this fall too, and that's the horn I'm going to bring. Personally I'd always go for the bronze, but that's a bit more expensive. It's an incredibly warm...

    Re: Mouthpiece to reed combination?

    @GallowaySaxMan, about your reed question, I personally prefer V16s to the Java Green, so perhaps you should test one or two of them out too(?) I think they have a much fuller, raw sound to them,...

    +3 what Dave said. Idk about your particular situation, but in my experience soprano sax parts are few and far between. So don't switch completely over to it, just work on it so you can cover the...

    When I tried out the 82z Alto I had a similar problem with it just feeling too awkwardly small, with my fingers slipping all over the place. I found the the Yani 991(2) had really good keywork for...

    Re: What kind of Vandoren to buy?

    No one here or anywhere is omnipotent enough to guarantee how one reed stacks up against another. IMHO I wouldn't touch anything but Vandoren Blue Box for classical work. On the other hand I think...
