Well, I started playing the tenor saxophone a year and two months ago. Before that I have played the alto for about 7 years. My sound on the alto is allright. I've been practising really hard: long tones, overtone exercises, diaphragm breathing exercises, but nothing seems to help. I play a Buescher Aristocrat from 1943, but it's in good shape I think and I play an Otto Link 7 (metal). Can anyone help me ?
