I'm loving my time with this sax and am just trying to get to know her after 5 months together. I have been playing Tenor for about 2 years and to be fair I have stayed away from the palm keys.. Until now.... needs must one step beyond and all that... I play a 10m fan showtime ebonite or a morgan fry vintage 7* metal with a vandoren green 2 reed. I couldn't get a high note out after c#. I upgraded the reed to a 2 1/2 and can now get the bottom notes and I'm ok up to palm e. Is there an alternative fingering for a high F and F# that may be easier or is it just time and practice... as I suspect I'm still a bit ropey on going from any note a,b or G to low C.
