  • In a dilemma on a new saxophone...
    So I've recently come across Trevor James (TJ) saxophones (yes, so late, I know! In Singapore, we have very limited choices due to the 'un'popularity of saxophone players, we're a scarcity. So TJ hasn't been popular and I've never seen it till they brought it in and my saxophone teacher recommended I try them) So […]
  • Trying clarinet again -- not going well
    I dug out my old Hanson clarinet as my sax has gone in for a service/repair and I remembered why I didn't played it much the first time I tried. I don't know if it's me or the instrument but crossing the break is a nightmare and if I start in the upper register it […]
  • Custom-fit ear plugs
    I play in a symphonic wind band and in rehearsals I am in front of the drum-kit, timps, mallet percussion, and 9 trombones... This gets to be VERY loud. I have an app on my phone which has a sound pressure meter on it and I regularly get 95db - I don't know what the […]

  • Alto Sax Harness for nine year old? Suggestions please 🙂
    Hi, As per introduction, I have a nine year old son that will start his Alto Sax lessons in September. As he is more Laurel than Hardy , if you get my drift, I believe a harness will be most suited for his physique. I have been looking at BG, Lebayle and Neotech harnesses and […]
  • Elkhart 100ss Saxophone
    Hi everyone! I've just bought my first saxophone - the Elkhart 100ss soprano saxophone, which looks beautiful, but i've read that the mouthpiece will be very cheap and in need of a higher quality replacement. I'm just curious (while i'm still within my 30 day money back guarantee) if it is worth me learning with […]
  • wah wah on Tenor
    Hi ! Who has experiance playing with wah wah sounds (pedal or touch wah)? I tried some different tools, but was'nt happy. I think the problem is, that it would not work well with microphone or clip mic but some pickup an the mouthpiece or on the sax neck. I saw some videos of Eddie […]
