I got a gun you can use if you want mate ... but clean it well after you done himHi to Taz; rhysonsax;
This is a long, sad story,the sax was a Gordon Beeson recon. I will probably respond to you both privately, as I don't have much time at the moment. The upper octave is incredibly bright and the lower one sounds like a gazoo!. I no longer have the original mouthpiece, but have tried several and it is still unplayable. I can't mention the name of the restorer, but can say that they had it for 2 years, and I assume that because I am in Spain, repeated phone calls were fobbed off. The original quote was £500, it finished up at £800.
Thanks for responding,
Always a good idea to get a second opinion.Hi all,
I've just had a cleaver idea (you'll all be terribly impressed with this!). Why don't I get the other local sax player (plays alto), to put his mouthpiece on my sax and see how it goes. I've never met the guy, but I've only heard good reports.
