    Re: For Canadians - getting repairs in USA

    Is it against the law to visit the United States, and bring your sax with you because you enjoy playing it and want to practice while you're here?

    Re: Tenor vs. clarinet vs. bass clarinet

    I think you'll find sax is a lot easier to learn and play then clarinet. The fingerings are a lot easier to learn and memorize, and you'll probably find a lot more uses for it in various types of...

    Re: Best screwdriver to remove rods, screws

    I use gunsmith screwdrivers for my sax. For longer reach use an extension. The kit I use is typically a driver plus various bits. I prefer the bit to fit the screw exactly (or at least real close) so...

    Re: Recommendation please

    I like the rollover RPC. Normally I like high baffle pieces, but the RPC rollover still has good attack and brightness but is super full sounding. I love my tone on all my horns with the RPC pieces....
  5. Re: RE20 mic damaged in relocation. Any reasonably-priced repair options?

    Have you called Electrovoice? They should be able to repair it for you, or have a certified repair tech to do it.

    Re: Finding a new mouthpiece

    With that budget see about an RPC mouthpiece. Give Ron a call and he can set you up with a good piece, and you can have it reworked if you find something about it you don't like (or return it). I...

    Re: Finding a new mouthpiece

    Give the Jody Jazz hard rubber pieces a try. I played a Norteno on my alto which was pretty nice, and an HR* on tenor. I use RPC pieces on all my horns now, but they are likely a bit over your budget...
  8. Re: How/ When did you know bari was the horn for you?

    Easy, when I played one for the first time.

    I've been really trying to play bari only for a while now, but I'm always needed on alto. Been that way since high school, actually. Always had the most...

    Re: Mouth Piece Information

    I have RPC pieces on my alto, tenor and bari. Absolutely love them. Very easy to play, and have a great sound. Great for any sort of rock and roll, and I also play mine in a concert band (typically...

    Re: Buying a Bari Sax

    Check out used bari's, lots of good deals to be had.

    I picked up my Yanagisawa made Vito for $2000. Great horn, plays wonderfully and was in good playing condition.

    Re: Sax recording basics

    If you're capturing too much "room noise" you can put up some cheap acoustic barriers or even heavy blankets and such on the walls/ceiling to help calm it down. If it's just a dead room then that's...

    Re: Recording comparisons with EV N/D468

    I absolutely love my N/D468. I use it live all the time. Not sure I have any recordings with it. It's my go to live mic for when my ribbon isn't appropriate.

    We've also used it occasionally on...

    Re: Any tips on mixing sax?

    If you have the mics for it, recording MS stereo can sound good (in a good room).

    Re: Any tips on mixing sax?

    I like to let the mic do most the EQ work. Then again I guess it depends on what you are recording and the genre, etc.

    I find the most improvement comes with mic placement, and the room. Ideally a...

    I'll try and track down that arrangement for quartet.

    I had a feeling three saxes wasn't going to cover the range sufficiently...I wonder how it will sound writing it so the highest note is F# on...

    Re: Loud speakers for practicing

    You can buy M-Audio interfaces new for $150. Drivers that don't completely suck, plus balanced line outputs.
  19. Re: Help arranging "Toccata & Fugue in D Minor" for sax trio

    I can double (and triple) up on parts since this won't be played live. My primary concern with not having a soprano is not being able to cover enough octaves with just ATB.
  20. Help arranging "Toccata & Fugue in D Minor" for sax trio

    Looking for input on arranging Toccata & Fugue in D minor for a sax trio (ATB). This won't be played live, just something I feel like doing and will record at some point in time. So in that regard I...
