Saxophone First Aid Doctor
How to stop your Sax being ill!
|Product Details||Eddie Ashton's brilliant little "get you home" pocket book helps you to keep your beloved saxophone in tip top condition. He shows you how to do minor 'on the spot' repairs and adjustments. He also shows you how to detect faults and, equally important, when to take your saxophone to your repairer. There are many free videos or "how to" websites that show you how to change a cork or how to change a pad on your saxophone. Admirable and praiseworthy but many are inadequate, or even wrong. But what if you are in a rehearsal or even in the middle of a gig? Strange things are happening to your saxophone - something wrong - but how do you find the solution? A pad has sprung a leak - a screw has come loose - or worse, got lost. Or a pad has split and the gig is just about to start. What then? Your Saxophone First Aid Doctor in your pocket could save the day! Apart from giving you guidance on how to care for your horn, Eddie also answers problems like these: 1. One of my keys is floppy. I think I've got a broken spring. 2. My pads keep sticking. 3 .When I try to play anything below bottom E, the notes start to bubble. 4. Everything's fine except for bottom C#, B or B flat. They just don't speak well. 5. B flat using the fingering LH1 and RH1 doesn't work. Eddie answers these questions and gives you many tips to "get you home" in an emergency. Plus Eddie also shows you how to re-cork the crook.|
