It might be fun if we share some of our favorite insider info on how to get the most out of our saxophones. Agree or not, it will give us food for thought. Here’s one to get us started.
Take in the ideal amount of mouthpiece. Take in too little and your tone will be thin and the short tube notes (the ones with just a few closed tone holes like C, C# and the left hand side key notes) will probably be sharp and may not speak easily. Take in too much mouthpiece and your tone will be coarse and it will be difficult to attack notes. The widest dynamic range, best intonation and best tone are achievable when you take in the ideal amount of mouthpiece.
