Well I fantasized about sounding like Stan Getz too...but no way...
Lurking on tRCMB since 1996
I play saxophone. But because I'm not good at music I kept moving down the register and landed at Bari. Now I plan in a New Horizons band with a bunch of retirees.
If you're looking for a band to join check out New Horizons website. They have groups all over the place.
I absolutely love playing my trombone, and I've had my eyes on a Rath R4F for years. I've just been slowly regressing since I graduated from MSU When were you there?
You're right, clarinet blows. I could never get the hang of going over the break.

I hatred the clarinet. Cant stand the sound of it when I play it, cant stand it when someone else plays it. Hate it.
If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Get yourself some Pete Fountain, GB.
To achieve great things, two things are needed; a plan, and not quite enough time. -- Leonard Bernstein
I'm an old fart -- marched 31A (that's right, end of the front row, baby) in the 1988 Tournament of Roses Parade! I'm semi-retired now, due to a diagnosis of embouchure dystonia -- which I now believe to be incorrect. I'm clawing my way back to respectability at the moment, and I'm considering buying a pBone just for laughs.
And you don't even want to know what we called saxophone players when I was in the SMB ...
I play a 1956 Alto Mark VI. Play out most weekends, mostly blues and some funk.
I bet that cost a penny or two.
God, these new smileys suck ass.
I've got a pBone on order. Got to play one about a month ago, pleasantly surprised at how well it sounded. Good response, decent sound everywhere but the low register. And for $150, I couldn't say no. Only takes a small shank mouthpiece though.
This just sent me on a two hour youtube detour. Thanks a lot.
You stay classy...planet earth.
It wasn't that bad when I bought it in 1988
this i want to hear
I'm going to try and get to the April 29 concert band gig this year. As I play trumpet, this is probably the wrong forum.
SMB 60-64, Alumni Marching and Concert bands, Kalamazoo Concert Band,71-present.
That's a fine horn. My late father played pro around Lansing and had a 54 Mark VI and late 30's Selmer clarinet and tenors.
OMG, so was I! 54D that year! Tenor Sax. Good times, Good times.......... BTW that name was reserved for alto saxes because so many of them were "S.F.s"
still waiting on some elaboration...
Selmer Mark IV

Question authority. Power to the people
I shared my credentials above. I've known dozens of saxophone players and have been a musician for over 40 years.
Forger was the sax teacher at MSU before he became Dean of the school of music and was replaced by Joe Luloff. Joe was a student and awesome player when I was in the school of music.
So I'm wanting to pick the alto saxophone back up after a 8ish year layoff, any recommendations on what to look at getting in the sub $1000 (although the real ceiling is probably around 2) range?
