Was listening to this last night. How do he get that sound? Is that his way of doing it or is it a super duper mouthpiece, the one I am searching for, or what? Come along ye meisters of the sax, let me know.

"Thier (Johnny & The Hurricanes) lively reverb sound was obtained by letting the music bounce around in the large auditorium of Detroit CarmenTowers" , Rock & Roll Saxophone, John Laughter.

Johnny Paris played a Martin sax ("The Martin Tenor") and I think his mouthpiece is a Berg Larsen Duckbill. He didn't play the high screaming notes that much. And he also played the tones short, staccato like. Chicken sax! I like Paris saxophone. Sounds easy but I think it's hard to play like that. A great player. Listen to the song "Sheba" as well. Good vibrato/big shake.

At the time it was rumoured to be that a carefully split reed was used.

Does famed impression of Chevalier singing "Ah yes. I remember it well." Exits stage left to wild applause.

Nick, Thomas, it is back to John Laughter's book for me. I will get that there mpc one day and if it coincides with my ability rising to the point where I can meaningfully use it, so much the better.

Old git, if only I could remember it, just a little bit. Gee gee whiz, that would be just fine.

I've encountered a few old rockers who've used this technique- split the reed down the eaxct centre with a razor blade. Tried it myself- felt a bit like putting slight a chorus & distortion effect on my tenor.....
