    Hot chicks on hand and a warm climate would help.
    I like the drummer's chopped down kit.
    My wife, whose ears I trust, said that my sound is much fuller, richer, more powerful and resonant on this set up.
    ... but really folks... my wife said, " It sounds like a saxophone ".

    How about a bright, whining sort of a mouthpiece?

    It's not easy to determine the sound of that sax because it
    plays together with the accordion or bandoneon (or what do they
    call it). It is a bright sound though. And as far as I can tell the guy
    uses a SS Berg Larsen or a Dukoff kind of mouthpiece. If so it 'll
    probably a higher baffle piece.

    Just my 2 cents. Richard

    It's a trick question, right? I don't think there is any sound whatsoever coming from the sax. Maybe he can't afford a reed.

    I play piano accordion. I hear an awful lot of accordion. I can't hear a sax Maybe my ears don't work today.........
    Actually, now listening to it again,I think I heard a little at the beginning and the end.

    I didn't hear a saxophone. Think it was probably all hacked together with a synthesiser or something. The "accordion" sound was pretty ropey too. IMO.

    Well, I just wasted 2:24 of my life waiting for a sax solo there... and I have no clue why.

    Buy an accordian and take lessons.

    Me too. I couldn't look away.

    The real question is, where can you find a sax sound in that video? Yeah, play the accordian if that's the sound you're after.

    I think Rolandsax is messin' with our minds.

    Tonguing. Funny how there's a tenor in the track and an alto on screen. Couldn't sit through the whole thing...
