    Copper necks: what about copper bodies?

    Late last year, I bought a new silver Series III with a copper neck. I love it, especially how well in tune the neck is and how the copper adds a touch of warmth to my sound.

    However, I also have...

    Re: New Vandoren V12 !!!

    I'm with you. I originally tried 3s because I played 3 on the blue boxes, and no matter how much shaving I did on the tip, I couldn't make it playable (with the exception of one reed). The 2.5s are...

    Re: Harvey Pittel Moving Along CD $7 shipped

    Without commenting on personal opinions on Dr. Pittel, this is what I notice from the CD:

    1) Why are so many of the works under tempo? Mvt. III and V of Tableaux and III of the Dahl are just so...

    Le Frene Egare

    Sorry for the lack of correct accents (stupid laptop)...

    I've been looking for a recording of Francois Rosse's "Le Frene Egare" for a while, but have come up short. I've asked several people and...

    Re: New Vandoren V12 !!!

    That's what I found, too. I got in a box of 3s the other day, and despite a lot of work with sandpaper, I just can't get them to respond better throughout the horn. I've had to order more, going...

    Re: New Vandoren V12 !!!

    You know, I really don't care that this guy is telling a BS story about Vandoren being owned by Rico.

    At what point did a thread about the quality of V12's get hijacked like this? Back on...

    Re: The Joys of Unsoldering

    The break is happening at the tenon, but I've never had any problem with the neck bending. Also, I clean off the joint before putting the neck on the horn almost every time.

    The break is showing...

    The Joys of Unsoldering

    I have a Series II alto that I got in March 2000. The horn was fine (except for the normal wear-and-tear and an overhaul in 2005) up until early 2006, when my original neck for the horn became...

    Re: Left Hand Tension

    I may have made a self-discovery:

    It seemed like that, when going up through the thirds, when I got to G, I would try to lift my ring finger on my left hand not by just moving the finger, but by...

    Left Hand Tension

    I've noticed quite a bit of tension in my left hand and wrist as of late while playing. It's particularly evident when I'm practicing scales (most notably on thirds). Besides massaging, what else...

    Re: Leather or metal?

    Metal has seemed to work best for me. For the longest time, I used Rovner darks, but I found it difficult to play notes in the lower register and often got a stuffy response; I just don't believe...

    Re: Marcel Mule: "A Terrible Musician"

    What was it that Mule said about altissimo? Something akin to, "I don't believe in tuning squeaks?"

    That's the ultimate importance of Rascher. While I'm not a fan of the Rascher style of playing...

    Re: Vandoren Optimum Size

    On this discussion, there's one thing I've always wondered:

    I have an optimum for my alto mouthpiece (S90 180), and I love it. However, on the descriptions for the Optimum for tenor, it says it...
