Dingricon,

Set up ko, alto, soprano at flute. ok ung Mark VII ko sir. sarap ng tunog. sayang naman ung MK VII mo, hirap pa naman humanap ngayon ng selmer. depende rin siguro sa gamit mo mouthpiece at sa condition ng saxophone. also malaking factor din ang sound system pag sa live gigs.

not all selmer saxes are alike, based on experience....kahit na VI pa...pero i think mas ok ang 62II ko doon sa vii na yon,stuffy and tunog...not open,although it plays easy top to bottom...pero you can feel it when you compare it to 3-5 horns side by side.......forget to tell that i also suspecting that vii was relacquered, done in factory...so beware of some relacquered horns... :wink:

well, kung starter sax, kahit anong midrange muna. i suggest mid-range para naman hindi panget talaga yung tunog mo sa simula at ganahan ka i-pursue. pero hindi naman super mahal para if ever ayaw mo na, may resale value pa siya at hindi ka nagsayang masyado ng pera.

maniwala kayo diyan. parents ko nagturo sa akin niyan. hehehe. sabi nila sa akin yan 6 years ago. :D

.......from my experience !tama ka dyan dalandan !....korek!!!  :-D :-D :-D
so sa mga students ko ganon din ang sinasabi ko!...
basta decent...need not be brand new...as long as it plays easy top to bottom...no leaks and the most important -  in tune !..remember the Fernando brand in the 90's?...matigas ang ulo ng isang student ko...gusto bago, makintab, ayaw makinig...to cut the story short, ....instead of buying the king super 20...ayon ....alam nyo na...ang pagsisi ay sa huli .. :x :x

sir dingricon,

ayun nga po. but i had a fernando din po. and it plays okay naman. :)

i love playing my sax. hirap lang kasi maingay magpractice. hehehe.

anyway, extra info sa mga gusto bumili ng sax: buy something you will love to play. it goes along with the price and quality yung feeling mo na GUSTO mong tinutugtog ang instrumento.

a sax is NOT an instrument that will yield immediate results. it takes years of practice to get good tone. ako 6 years na, sa tingin ko hindi ako magaling by any means. i can read notes and play some tunes pero yung feel ko sa sax mejo kulang pa. sana makatulong ako sa mga budding saxy people. :D

Dalandan,

I heard, Fernando (JB brand) improved a lot...my experience is on the 90's...isa pa noon ang Musicmate..siguro ok na rin ito ngayon.. I tried a lot of copies from China (Topsax,Legend,Toulour etc..)and some are better than Taiwan Made...yong iba naman,wow ! grabe !..puede nang pabigat sa bangka.....nasa factory din kasi yan!...One brand i tried from the PHilippines is the Regal, galing Lyric Music.. ok naman..anyway, sa mga nais mag aral..lao na may forum na tayo.. sugod na!.. we're here to help ......

Just been to Mang Pany's house in Blumentrit. He got several of vintage alto sax for sale, looking for a tenor sax din kasi pero wala daw siyang tenor ngayon.

You may want to check Mang Pany's alto saxes. His CP# 09185220550.

Mga kapamilya at kapuso....naks.   I suggest never have your sax replated. Karamihan daw talaga sa mga relacquered instruments ay magbabago ang tunog like magiging ngongo. Eventually maiisipan mag shift sa ibang brand. Please note that the value ng replated instrument goes down. Kaya payo nila di bale nang kupas na kupas, dito lalo lalabas ang maganda niyang tunog.

Most pro players doesn't care about the look, pero yung tunog ang hinahanap. Tots Tolentino alto selmer niya is kupas na kupas. Nakaka in love... yung sax ha, hohoho. Sarap pakingan.
