Bringing in the new year

I hope everyone had a great holiday and is looking forward to the new year as much as us at Saxquest. We’ve got some exciting developments for the new year, including a new mouthpiece. In the immediate future, we will be at the JEN show and MMEA again this year, so we hope to see you there. Looking ahead to February and March, we’re going to have some fantastic events at the shop in our Concert Artist series, some long-time Saxquest friends including Tim Aubuchon, Stephen Martin, and Paul DeMarinis, so stay tuned for more details as those draw nearer.

Everyone be safe at your New Years Eve gigs, and come by the shop or visit the booth at one of the shows, and say “hi!” The store will be closed on News Years Day, but normal hours otherwise the rest of the week.

Introducing the NEW D’Addario Reserve Alto Sax Mouthpiece

We just got in a shipment of the new D’Addario Reserve series mouthpiece for the alto sax. This classically designed mouthpiece is a beautiful player, with a rich, warm tone, offering the player a bountiful amount of control. A sweet, lush sounding mouthpiece for true classical players. The smallest one, the D145, features a tip opening of just .057″, which is tiny, but it still feels very free and in no way is constricting, responding best obviously with a harder reed. We have these pieces available for sale right now on our website.

Stay tuned for some play test videos in the next couple days.

RESTORED Vintage Alto Sarrusophone Available for Sale!

Here at Saxquest, we very rarely toot our own horn, but this one is an exception. Saxquest’s Chris Funck just finished restoring an original Gautrot Marquet Eb alto sarrusophone, and we now have it available for sale :

https://www.saxquest.com/product/view/wow-vintage-gautrot-marquet-paris-eb-alto-sarrusophone-fully-restored-P10099

This is an extremely rare instrument, made more so by that fact that it is ready to play. Chris spent a lot of time bringing this instrument back to life, and is a fantastic find for serious collectors. We’ll try to get a video of this one up in the next week or so, if we can find someone who plays double reeds well enough to do it justice!
