    American standard was made by HN White/king saxophones, intonation may be a bit iffy but once set up should play fine Dave

      Thanks, it's one of the king saxophones.. made in 1931 - 1933. it sounds fine. I must find another mouthpiece and reeds to play jaaz on it. Is there some mouthpiece recommended on such an old saxophone?!

        I have got a few old alto's, the oldest is a 1927 buescher true tone and i use a metal berg larson. I dont hold with the theory about you have to use a vintage mpc on a vintage horn. If its set up correctly you can use what you want. The only ones that are a bit picky are the conn 10m tenors which seem to prefer a larger chamber mpc. I have one and 2 chu's and the chu's aren't picky whereas the 10m is slightly picky Dave
