  • Considering to buy a new alto saxophone
    I'm considering to buy a new alto saxophone. Since, I can't test or blow on any of candidates. I would like to ask for help with your experience and background. Three candidates; 1.- Antigua Pro-One; 2.- P. Mauriat Le Bravo 200; 3.- Trevor James Signature Custom Gold Lacquer. All three have a similar price level. […]
  • Hi everybody
    Hi everybody, I'm a rookie saxo player. Probably you realize that my english is limited and poor. So, sorry about that. I'm trying to learn and improve on both issues. Own a Yanagisawa T901. Thanks for your attention and collaboration.
  • The long road back...
    Hey All, I'm Mike and just picked up the Saxophone (again) after 20+ years. Saw Pete's posts on SOTW forums and figured to check y'all out. I seem to have developed a new addiction to old Conn/Buescher horns. Greetings from Albuquerque, NM.

Saxophone Instruction DVD region compatibility

This is a PAL all region DVD so will not require you to reset your DVD player/computer region.

However as it is PAL format it may not be compatible with some older U.S. TV sets which are NTSC only, please check if your TV and/or DVD player is compatible with PAL format.

If not, it should still work on any computer with DVD drive (anywhere in the world). Please note we have only tested the DVD by playing on DVD systems or playing on computers with standard DVD hardware and software. We cannot guarantee that files extracted (ripped) from the DVD will play successfully. Sharing of copied DVDs or ripped files is illegal.

How much will postage cost?

After adding an item or several items to your cart, click on the Calculate Shipping button and choose your location from the dropdown menu. This will give you the postage options available to your country.

We usually post within 3 days of receiving an order. We are unable to give exact delivery times, but generally packages to Europe can take 2 - 7 days, outside Europe 4 - 14 days. Under exceptional circumstances (weather, strikes, customs delays) it can take longer.

Out of stock books and DVDs are generally restocked within a week. Out of stock or special order mouthpieces can take between 6 and 10 weeks for manufacturing.
