Saxophone Care. It's all about the saxophone.

Sax care is all about the saxophone. If you look after your sax it will give you many years of trouble free pleasure and playing.
General saxophone care tips
Servicing is a must if you play reguarly with an expensive named sax. Keys go out of alignment, pads wear and shine diminishes over time. How often you service it would depend on how much you play.
A person who plays every day may want to service their sax every six months or more. If you only take it out at weekends you may only need to do it once every 12-18 months.
If you have a cheap sax, around £200, it may be that you never get it serviced. Is it worth spending £100-£200 on a sax that cost so little. If you love it then maybe it is, but the likelyhood is that once you've mastered a cheaper sax you will want to move up to a more expensive model anyway.
Remember the thing about the saxophone is it will serve you well if you serve it well so take your saxophone care seriously.
