Hi,

I have been snooping around on this forum for the last few weeks and you all look a friendly and knowledgable bunch so I though, I would join you. :thumb:

I currently have a rather 'clunky' student tennor sax and a PPT mouthpiece. I am hoping to upgrade the sax in the near future with something along the lines of a yanagisawa T9xx or a Yamaha YTS82 or YTS875. Any advice would be gratefully received.

Cheers Al.

Hi Al

Welcome - I'm fairly new and they're fairly sociable. I'm sure you'll get plenty of ideas/advice/support from many with your queries.

What-ho Big Al. Hope you've had all your jabs now you're living in the North.
From whence have you travelled and where is your abode.

Hi Big Al, and a Big Welcome to the Cafe from the deep south of Wales - home of Snake Davis!

I have played a PPT on a Yani T901 tenor, which was a pretty good combination but I swapped it for a System 54 Sax, which I love. There are lots of good new tenor saxes out there, which are worth a look at in addition to the usual suspects - Yani/Yami and others. It partly depends on what sound you are looking for. I found my Yani a little too bright and neutral sounding - did not really fit mymental image of the sound I wanted.

I hope you have a great time in the Cafe.

Kind regards
Tom

Welcome to the caff©, Big-Al.

You any relation to the CaSLM's Big Al? He crushes coconuts in his left hand for a laugh. Never let him touch my sax.

ENJOY!

Welcome

Well I have been up here for nearly 20 years now so have built up some natural immunity. I live near Huddersfield so not that far from you.

Thanks for the welcome,

I noticed that there is a system 54 dealer in Leeds so i'll get along there and have a demo. Do you use the PPT with the system 54 ok.

Thanks for the advice to look around as I really can't afford to keep replacing saxophones so I want to make the correct choice 1st time.

Thanks

Al,
