I recently took delivery of brand new tenor manufactured in Taiwan, which I bought from the States. I leave on a Greek Island, so it traveled for a long way til it got to me. The sax must of got a whack during transfer and the bridge that holds the rods operating the bell keys, was misaligned leaving a gap of 2mm from the rods. There is no repair man on the Island, so I e-mailed Stephen, who responded immediately and gave me instructions on how to restore the damage. I removed all the rods/keys and carefully tapped the bridge in the correct position. All is well now and the sax plays beautifully.

So many thanks to you Sir, Mr. Howard.

Stephen sorted both my alto and tenor last year when I was over in the UK, not only is he an expert tech but he plays wonderfully and demonstrated how my horns should sound.

Sadly I am not at his level of skill, and I alaways think its to do with the horn, but usually its down to my lack of expertise.

Plaese dont get me wrong not suggesting that in this case, but when you are in his company as I was last year it makes you realise how little you know about the insturment and its capabilitiles - well me anyway....

Happy blowing koumou.

Cheers,

I havent yet bought SH Haynes Saxophone Manual, but next time I'm in Stockholm I will visit Margie's bookstore and see if it's there. They carry lots of Haynes books and other technical books. I prefer to buy at the bookshops.
