Good day all. Do anyone know of such an item that can hold sheet music connected to the sax neck. I will be resizing the sheet music down to half the size. I hope to be able to play while reading my sheet music connected to the saxophone neck or maybe bell if a holder is available. If not any ideas would be of good joy.

It's called a Lyre and fits into the bracket next to, or part of the neck screw fitting

beaten at the post . . .

The Lyre is so old school. I reckon one wants a pair of glasses with built-in display. Maybe these could be paired with mobilesheets or such? You could even get in-ear backing or metronome...

Just a grand.

As long as it function for its use then it’s modern.

I thank you all for the help.

Very cool! But resolution appears to still be too low for sheet music. I learned that the hard way with various tablets I’ve use over the years. You need a lot of pixels for staff lines to be legible and for enough of the page to show at one time so you don’t have to turn the page every few bars.

How good is your close up vision? With my normal vari-focals nearest in focus is about 20 inches.

I'm curious as to the application here. Will you be in motion while playing such as in a marching band?

I did puchase one and its a great addition to the sax. About 15 inches away from my vision. No marching just a little walking

Fair point, how about 1280x720p?

The problem still seems to be either they're clunky but good res or less clunky and low Res.... Like hoverboards, we're still some way from what we where promised.

Daft Punk got it right, i guess

Better, but still not quite good enough for my old eyes. I was never really comfortable with any tablet until I finally got 1920x1080.

I wonder how those fancy glasses work less than an inch from your eyes. I guess they do some tricks to make the focal point appear to be way out in front of you.

Using lenses and mirrors a virtual image can be focussed to appear to come from almost any distance and appear in focus to the viewer. Dont ask me to explain it as my memory of optics from school has faded over the last 60yrs.:old:

Another alternative could be some kind of VR headset. Not only could you see the score in full HD but you could rig up a full augmented display... A camera could take a video of the audience and transform a half empty room of shabby drinks into a display of a full room if lovely young people dancing and cheering your solos...

Not as tricky as future AR glasses will be!
I reckon, in two years or so, Apple will have a pair that set the standard.

Meh- why not issue everyone in the audience VR glasses, then play them footage of Trane/Brecker/yourfavouriteplayer giving it the works, and say it's you! no need to practice then ;-)

Yeah, who wants a lyre, flip folder, and some 4 x 6 cards, when you can use $3000 worth of buggy failure prone software and hardware to achieve a worse result?

Well, quite. I've found the same contrast between the tin whistle and sax; a few quids worth of tin and plastic with 6 holes vs £100s or £1000s worth of over mechanised and unstable engineering...
