I came back to the sax (alto) last year after a 15 years break. I used to play a Selmer S-80 C** and bought a Jody Jazz HR 6 last year after discovering Sax on the web.
Let's just say that I am slow to recover both my embouchure and lung capacity. I love the tone and feel of the Jody Jazz but I have a hard time playing piano or to modulate, I feel I am wasting my air. Is it simply too free blowing for my current lung capacity?
If so what would you recommend that would have more resistance (if I diagnosed my issue correctly) but with a tone close to the JJ.
On the JJ I use Vandoren Java 2.5 or LaVoz Medium-Soft except when my mouth is really tired I sometime go down to LaVoz Soft... While on the C** I usually use either Java 2.5 or Vandoren (Blue Box) 3.
I am curious of the Super Session D (or E) as I recall reading it had some resistance.
Thank you for any advice or insight!
