Former brass player, now loving alto
Hello everyone. My name is Mark. I just recently started playing the old alto horn that belonged to my wife. Trombone was getting old since I have been playing low brass since middle school. I felt it was time for change.
I'm sporting a nice vintage Bundy II (I say that with total sarcasm). It plays well enough for me. I have already upgraded the stock mouthpiece to a nice S80 C*. I may invest in the C** or the D. I feel like I'm having to force air through the horn. Playing up high I never use up an entire breath. I have a Jody Jazz 6M that I'm working on as well.
I am really loving the alto sax, and all the different sounds you can get out of it. I love the growl, the soft sub tones, and everything in between. I hope to learn as much as possible and, dare I say it, get a C-Melody sax in the future. I'm debating between a vintage Conn and a new sax.co.uk Sakkusu C-Melody. I'll cross that bridge when I get there.
Hope to contribute quite a bit to the site!
