Workin on my sound (still)

+ 8
Went with an all metal ligature this time..and put a little snake oil on my pads. That's the trouble with buying a cheap horn...probably cost more to get it runnin right than what it's worth. Gonna work with the snake oil treatment again overnight..otherwise it'll be into the shop for a re-pad. You can hear a strubble on the low end...

Feedback on the sound would be appreciated

It's a 1918 Buescher I swooped off the shelf in a local pawn shop during a 1/3 off Thursday..I always played an alto back in the day..and thought a tenor would be fun..

Mine's an Elkhart..kinda confusing on it's history..Ser # dates it at 1918..but ties in with the True Tone's not real pretty..looks it's age

I've got a true tone alto, plays very well. Fascinating, those older saxes, a lot of tonal variety back then.

akethesnakerakethesnaker WOW 96 years, I had a guitar who was from 1911. A Levin, the swedish company who Martin buyed up and killed. Levin made better slide guitars than Martin he he

Should have answered here, nice playing! Sounds great! I have a fish smokery close here so it`s no problem for me exept that they are so expensive:D, but good quality fish from the ocean here.
