Just what your dogs needed. A nice little chewy toy sax Nice job on the build
If it plays on a saxello it'll play on any sopranoThat’s a pretty hard-core test of one of your mouthpieces. That’s really impressive one would cover that broad of range. You my friend are a talented mouthpiece maker.
Imagine that piece played on a saxello, though
Beautiful! You are playing it in Eb rather than in Bb. Very nice playing!Sometimes we were asked to play something during the church service For a wedding. I was playing the Yani 880 around this time.
I have a 1922 TT but it's a c-sop. But there is something about the tone of a saxello that is kind of magic. Thanks for the link to Soft Machine, I wasn't even aware of that.It was a King Saxello that got me playing sax in the first place. I was inspired by the playing of Elton Dean in Soft Machine 50 or so years ago.
I didn't get a King though. I started with a Buescher True Tone soprano from the 30s.
Thank you!Thanks for nice recording.
The diffent shapes of the sopranos matters? Straight, tipped bell, "Saxello", perfect curved (semi curved) and fully curved have differnt voices? Or is it the players that matters? Or a combination between the player and shape of the soprano? A straight soprano have a diffent sound compared to a fully curved. The bell of the curved soprano is more aimed to the players ears so the player is adjusting the tone/sound. Modern mikrophones and PA (monitors/headphones) are good for the soprano.
Thanks but I forgot to wrote that is Bob Ackerman, NJ that is playing. He did a CD for Saxophone Journal to show demonstrate fine vintage American saxes. Ans the picture on the YT clip is from UMI catalog and their Musica curved soprano. I must have a film or a picture when I want to upload a sound file.Nice recording Thomas!
