I've purchased my saxophone for a few years now, and being the beginner (which I still am) when I purchased it, I didn't bother to bring it to get it tuned up etc. Now, I'm somewhat dissatisfied with the tuning of the instrument and the middle D in particularly is extremely in sharp. The neck cork seems to be a bit loose too because I used the Yamaha mpc that came with it, and now I switched to a Meyer 6M and the Yamaha was much tighter than the Meyer.
If I'm correct, if you are sharp, you shorten the saxophone correct (by pushing in)? On my saxophone, it becomes even more sharp?! This is why I'm quite firm on replacing the cork, because the previous Yamaha really compressed the cork.
How much will it cost me to get my saxophone tuned? The cork replaced?
I'm going to bring it to Tom Lee, Long & McQuade or Prussin. Anyone know which one of the 3 have the best repairman? Pricing?
