Sax on the Web Portal - Evaluating a Used Saxophone For Purchase (video)

  • Evaluating a Used Saxophone For Purchase (video)

    Hey guys,

    I made this video a week or so ago. I wish I'd thought to visit this section first, as I am sure there are things in the stickies at the top that I could have integrated into it. But anyhow, here it is, hopefully with the visual stuff added this is helpful to use yourself or to link to a friend/student who starts asking questions about buying a horn. Also it was one of my first ever edited videos (typically I just do one long unscripted take, this was from a script and I tried my hand at simple editing) and I screwed up the very first cut, by forgetting to take off the first few seconds! But I've got crap internet and I'm too lazy to re-upload it. So enjoy a few moments of awkwardness before the video starts.

    I also copied the script here in case you'd like to read it as well, but I ad-libbed a few things in the video that aren't in the script so watch the video if you can.

      Excellent video thanks. Useful and informative and in my case very relevant as I am going through the the process of hopefully purchasing another horn.

    this thing will never go away.

    but at the very least you can now bring your sax neck to the nearest nail “ artist” and give it a coat of lacquer to think that you change its sound.

    OMG! Even...

    It may change somewhat after 1 July when GST kicks in on all overseas purchases regardless of price......

    makes you wonder how, in this day and age, shops in AU can still sell since even in the most inaccessible places you have at least some internet access
