    Re: G# Pearl for DJH Modified Alto

    I just bought an F# pearl for my tenor from Music Medic which was relatively inexpensive and easy to install. They're knowledgable over there - I would recommend going to their web site,...

    Okay, so if coffee is "acceptable" if drunk black (apart from the slight tanning effect on the pads), what other drink(s) are "acceptable?"

    Re: Shellac At Cold Temperatures???

    Okay, I'm going to add my single-point personal experience to the mix.

    Re: Alto sax reconditioning

    Here in Buffalo, NY $400 is a good price for a standard overhaul from a reputable tech. Please note, by "standard", I mean that the horn is currently playable and doesn't require special attention -...

    Re: How can I clean...

    Saxmoose: I may have worded this wrong. I don't know for sure whether WD-40 or rubbing alcohol will damage silver plating. I assumed the work was being done on the inside (unplated) part of the...

    Re: How can I clean...

    I would suggest doing a search on this forum using the keywords "rust" and/or "corrosion". You'll find a lot of useful information.

    Re: A Hinged Bell???

    My favorite part of the whole ad is the header: "Wonderful Buescher Saxophone" (I shouldn't be cruel - the poster makes it clear early-on that he is not a sax player and knows nothing about them).

    A Hinged Bell???

    Folks,

    I found this on ebay and it aroused my curiosity. While I know the bell can be detached from the body of the sax, I have never seen anyone create a hinge system for it. Intuitively, I...

    Re: Sax effects with amplifiers

    Re: BG Shoulder Neck Strap?

    I use a strap along the same lines as well for my tenor (you may actually see it in my avatar if you look really closely with a magnifying glass :D). I like it a lot. It's great for those long gigs...

    Re: teflon

    Re: teflon

    Gordon makes a good point (as he usually does) about Teflon - it is rigid and it would make sense that it's noisy.
