Good stuff! :yess:

But of course the big thing that is missing in your videos is a baritone sax. >:)

That’s great. Nice alto solo.
Is that a Syos mouthpiece on your tenor and soprano? Why doesn’t your alto have one? What type of mouthpiece is on your alto?

What type of microphone are you using? The sound is wonderful.
By the way, I like the sunglasses. Lol

Thanks Nigel - I think a baritone is kind of inevitable now, but the saxophone budget was blown a long time ago!

Thanks Nikki - yes I have syos mouthpieces for both tenor and soprano. I'm playing the Yamaha 4c that came with the alto. It's a really nice mouthpiece but I'm struggling to get the high notes out with it. I have some harder reeds on order which might help that. oh - and I have ordered a syos mouthpiece for the alto.

The mic is a Shure sm-58 and the sunglasses are my daughters. I think they came free with some frozen oven chips :cool:

Free with Frozen oven chips :rofl: Thats so cute.:thumb:
Well you ‘must’ be liking that brand of mouthpiece or you wouldn’t be purchasing one for every sax you own. That speaks volumes.
Ive got a 4C on the way. It was supposed to come with the second hand saxophone that I purchased but I got a Selmer instead. I ordered it due to all the info I’ve read about it.

Thanks for the info about the mic. That’s definitely a surprise.

One of the good things about syos, is that they have a 30 trial period, so if you're not happy with it, just send it back and try another, or get refunded. To be honest, I'd prefer to go somewhere and try a lot of different mouthpieces, but that's not going to happen and I really like my other syos pieces - so, easy decision really.
