All playing information is gathered from personal experience and we would also like other players experiences and information. Here you will find information on all topics relating to the sax.

Whether you want a subtle notebend for a sexy lick or you want a more in your face full on growl for a rocking blues sound we'll show you the basics of getting that sound.
Adolphe Sax was an un-assuming man with a vision.
Thankfully, despite many setbacks and doubters his vision became a reality. This was mainly due to his own perserverence and determination.
If he hadn't been the man he was then the sax may never have come into existence. Can you imagine that? Music without the saxophone? I shudder to think of it.
Yes, we want to hear from you. We welcome comments on everything from playing style and tone to reeds and mouthpieces.
