Welcome to the Cafe, I love your cafe name! )) 27 is a very early age (by comparison) to start the sax, and getting one for Christmas is exactly how I started too. Enjoy your journey, it can sometimes be a bit bumpy, but the end result is sooooo worth the effort! ;}
Welcome and I'm reading "Weerz me dad?", a Christmas pressie from a melodeon playing friend. Do tell us that Sheffield is still that amusing.
Do tell us what size you've got, sopranino downwards.
In the meantime, forgive us wrinklies and enjoy.
Welcome to the Caff. I think you'll find that most people here started later in life. The main thing is starting, what you will find is that you now can't stop!!
Good bunch of people here all with one thing in common, love of the sax and music. Hope you enjoy it. Phil
I have an Alto sax, it's a B&S Sonora - just a standard mouthpiece at the moment but open to recomendations for a good one for begginers. I want to create quite a mellow, soft sound, rather than just loud and bright - if that makes sense?
