    Hello all from San Diego. I am an old-school rock and roll guitarist looking for a new challenge, so I picked up the sax and am learning to play. I have recently found an instructor to help my growing pains. He set me up with a BEAUTIFUL Martin Indiana tenor that I'm getting accustomed to. I look forward to getting away from the honks (the cats hide when I play) and getting on to really goosing it up. Hopefully the cats will come back out soon.

    Hello Harri and all the SOTW members. Nice website here! My name is Richard, aka RRsax, age 59. I play blues, rock, folk, R&B and I accompany singer-songwriters. I also play some jazz, but it's not my specialty. As a frequent performer in the Philadelphia PA area, I am currently recording two CDs with my bandmates, using professional studio engineers. As chairman of the music ministry committee at my church, I recruit other musical acts and schedule performances for the church. I have been playing sax for 50 years and I currently own 4 saxes -- an Antigua soprano, a Couf alto, a Yamaha pro tenor and a Unison bari sax. I do have an immediate agenda. I want to post an "item wanted" ad: I have an Antigua Winds A590LQ professional soprano sax, finished in brass lacquer, purchased from Kessler Music of Las Vegas in 2010. It is a straight soprano sax with two interchangeable necks, one straight and one that is slightly curved. The curved neck was dented and then repaired, but it does not look good, and I would like to replace it with one that is in good condition. Please contact me if you can sell me a curved neck for this horn, or if you have any advice to help me in this predicament .. ... many thanks! Very glad to be joining SOTW!

    I found your post to be interesting. I myself am 68 years and starting playing
    about 55 years ago, but stopped playing for about 45 years until a few months
    ago when I took the tenor saxophone out of the case and started practicing again.

    How things have changed in terms of the brands of both saxophones and mouthpieces, as well as reeds that are available. I still have some 45 to 50 year old
    rico reeds ( they should be in a museum ).

    Playing again has been great. Where did the time go ? I am now in the process of
    trying better mouthpieces and different brands of reeds.

    Hello,

    I'm glad to join this forum that I've been reading off of for months. I'm 17 and I LOVE the saxophone. I've been playing for roughly six years now, and I'm best at the alto. My main reason for joining this site is to get good tips for playing and knowing the best set-ups that would be good for me, my main concern right now being reeds.

    Hello,
    I'm a late bloomer just starting out, currently in Denver. I've gathered tons of helpful info from this site already. Great to be able to get thoughts from people who know far more than I do about music and saxophone.

    Hi, my name is Charlie Phillips and I've been playing sax for 8 years. I am from Seattle and played in the Garfield Jazz Band there. Now, I am a freshman at the UW. I mainly play tenor but I also play some alto, and I bought a soprano a couple days ago that I like!

    Hi everybody. My name is Daniel. I started early in junior high school playing clarinet and after a year and a half switched to the awesome Saxaphone. I played it for 5 years until I got out High school in 96. Im now 34 and decided to buy me another Sax, I started with a Yamaha student model (YAS23) just to make sure I would still enjoy it. I LOVE it and I find its amazing the things I still remember from my school days, and also the things Ive forgotten. Im currently taking lessons 2x/week and playing my sax non-stop at home. Im so happy to get back into playing music again and looking to upgrade to a Cannonball professional Tenor sax. Glad to be a part of this group and look forward to lots of advice and tips

    Hello folks-I finally jumped in after lurking off and on over the past few months. I've been playing and performing for over 50 years and am proud to say I bought my Mark VI tenor brand new in 1966. I also have its baby brother 1968 Mark VI alto and a Yamaha YSS-875 soprano to complete the stable. What a great group you guys are!! Thanks for your wisdom.
