    I use the hard shell type glasses cases freely available from Opticians for storing my MP’s and extra reeds. The cases are padded inside which offers extra protection, I also wrap the MP’s with a glasses cleaning cloth so they don’t rattle around in the case. These glasses cases fit nicely inside the sax case.

    Thanks for the links William. The FC mpcs sound great and come in at a great price. I’ve spent the afternoon talking to my dealer. Sure this alto is fine, but after thirty years playing tenor \ bari, its a bit late in the day to switch. Just circumstances have left me in a tough spot. I’m confident well work something out. I’ll let him have the alto and an offset Berg 90 \ 1. I’m hoping to grab a decent tenor stencil, along the lines of a Varsity. I guess its always going to be tenorsax for me.

    Ever since I started using my brass goose neck. the one that came with the horn my sound has improved and the fat bottom lip helps. I have been using a sterling silver goose neck but the brass goose neck and the fat bottom lip makes the sound fatter with buzz. My sax tech tole me that a lot of research went into the neck that selmer uses on their reference 54 saxophones. Sound has improved. My timing needs a lot more.
    Has anybody heard anything regarding the arrival of their fiber carbon mouthpiece. So I find it hard to keep up with a backing track or a metronome. But I sound good while trying to keep the beat.
