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...
Grandpa Pete! Great news.
Likely a 4 series horn. Maybe a 3. Either way I think it is overpriced.
Looks like a T-6 to me. Made in 1977. I'd have to see the bell to body brace clearly to be certain about it being a T-6 but I'm pretty sure.
Interesting experiment. I have some old reel to reel that I need to get into my audio program but I don't have a reel to reel. :-)
Enjoy them. I've played them and they are nice. I also enjoy Mitchell Lurie's.
I wonder who bought it.
Yakety Sax. :-)
I can tell you there is a change in the lacquer between my 1960 alto and my 1969 tenor. I'm not sure when they changed the formula though.
It's nice to have these back as they're surprisingly good pieces with a bit of work.
Interesting. I'm probably still better off using my tech but some folks will surely try to make their own pads as well. I have been intrigued with the idea of using neoprene for years but everyone...
That would be pretty cool.
