Hey everyone, I’ve been playing sax for a while now and I have a couple of good modern horns that I enjoy playing on. There is one piece in my miniature collection of saxophones that is over 100 years old, and that is my selmer stencil c melody sax made in 1917. This horn is in pretty good condition and looks good as well; but it simply cannot play in tune. When I use a modern selmer c* tenor piece on it it is much more consistent, but it is about 40 cents flat when pushed on all the way. On the contrary, I can use the original 1920s mouthpiece which plays closer in tune, but is very inconsistent with each note and makes a very strange tone. My c melody is not the point however, as I’m looking into purchasing a 1929 tenor (American standard). Because tenor is not my main horn, I am planning on making it my main tenor, and I want a horn that will play with a good sound and not be similar to my c Mel. I’m not really looking for a mark vi, but I do want a horn that can play a good vintage sound with fairly good intonation. I don’t know if the problem I had was only usual for c melodies as I know they seem to have a lot of intonation problems, but I don’t want to go out and buy a horn that doesn’t play decently. Do any of y’all know weather or not all early 20th century horns play off or if it is a problem only my horn experiences?
