How To Playtest a New Saxophone

As you continue to progress as musicians, you will eventually outgrow the equipment you are using. Even if you feel like you aren’t ready to jump into an upgraded instrument, I highly encourage you to play test a step up or professional level instrument if you get the chance. Play testing a new instrument is a skill on par to sight reading: you might not necessarily do it every day, but the more you do it, the easier it will get!

And whether you are in-person, virtual, or on a hybrid schedule, it is a great time to talk about the benefits of an upgraded instrument!  Manufacturers build student level instruments to be durable and easy to play.

When to Buy Which Trumpet? Classical Edition

Last time we discussed instruments that would be good for those of us who primarily want to play jazz or commercial types of music and left it by discussing studio musicians who may need to do it all. This leads us nicely into the classical side of trumpet playing and the instruments needed for that work. In order of importance here are my suggestions. (Your timeline may vary. Please consult your teacher/professor on when it is appropriate to purchase these instruments)

Graduate To Yamaha 2019

Graduation typically means ordering an over-priced cap and gown, long ceremonies with longer speeches, open house celebrations, and more pictures than you may ever want to take. Thankfully musicians can enjoy a more pertinent graduation in the form of the Graduate to Yamaha promotion!

Limited Edition Alert! – The Yamaha Xeno “Kangakki” Trumpet

Unveiled at the NAMM show just several weeks ago, the limited edition Yamaha Xeno “Kangakki” has arrived at Paige’s Music. Even more exciting is that there are only 100 of these trumpets available in the United States!

Based on the acclaimed YTR-8335IIS Xeno, the Kangakki is truly one-of-a-kind with gold plated accents on the valve caps, valve buttons, black mother-of-pearl finger buttons, and a 16C4 mouthpiece with gold plated rim and cup. Finally, the “Kangakki” bell engraving adds one final touch that symbolizes “the highest quality of instruments for musicians of any level”.

Instrument Features:

  • A new bell design contributes to optimum resistance for a powerful tonal core and accurate slotting. The new design also enhances playability in the upper register.
  • Thinner valve casing and pistons, as well as the modified angle of the branch tube (knuckle) result in improved response and provide the performer with an ideal blowing resistance.
  • The button on the 1st slide serves to fine-tune the blowing resistance for optimum control.
  • The height of the main slide water key gutter has been increased for optimum resistance, and the ends of the water key spring have been curled for improved response.
  • Double case with backpack straps.
