Interesting. I have an old Couesnon alto that actually plays very well but the table keys are of the older design.
Very sad. Terry was a wonderful guy.
Tonight I'm enjoying Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
This is the reissue from about a decade ago on CD (actually listening to a FLAC rip of the CD). Not the most recent reissue which according to some...
He played with a wide vibrato at times. It was an interesting recording.
I thought everyone would get a kick out of what I am listening to right now. Found it today at a used record shop.
I like my B-6's. One has nylon resonators and the other has brass. The brass resonators seemed to give the horn more balls. Before the change the two horns played pretty much the same. My main...
All is well. Just busy with work although not as busy as the last few years!
I own two B-6 Low A's. One is from 1969 and the other from 1972.
I have played exactly one T-6. It was o.k. I would prefer a 8xx or 9xx series tenor over it.
I have a number of catalogs...
I have had some measure of success recreating the Desmond sound with a Morgan 3C. I think the chamber may be slightly larger than the Gregory but there's basically no baffle in either one. I was...
We have fixed the issues related to the outage of the last two days. We essentially had issues related to a mandatory upgrade of some of the back end software that makes the site run. These were...
Without seeing the area where the "5" was found, I wonder if it is not an A-5.
Thanks again Pete.
Thanks for your assistance with this. I just noticed that you are approaching 8000 posts and it's been great to have you and Jim on board from the start.
I would like to see an attempt made to add a vent to deal with D being out of tune. The rest I can deal with.
The hole didn't go through the reed and I have been known to use it as a last ditch approach to saving a reed that played too hard. Most of the time, I find it more useful just to put the reed aside...
I use the methods described in The Art of Saxophone. Most of the time, I find that if I sand the vamp and make sure the reed is flat that I have no issues with most reeds. I also think it is really...
My grandmother on my mom's side loved Lawrence Welk and used to go dancing with her sister at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago to the Welk Orchestra. I saw Blues Traveler at the Aragon in 2003 which I...
All of the clarinets that I've had in my possession have had only one serial number on the body.
Riffault blank. Nice quality rubber.
What are you looking for that the piece doesn't presently provide?
Haven't used the reed profiler but the concept is interesting. The only variable is that cane is somewhat variable and a given cut does not always equal the same result. Most of the reed companies...
Nice to have you here.
Nothing musical this year for me other than buying some music online.
There's a horn somebody could easily play for the next 40 years.
I saw some years ago a new in the wrapper King Super 20 that was build in the late 1970's or early 1980's. I was blown away by...
