great Eric glad to hear it!
I remember playing some Yamaha’s during the 70’s, I thought they played really nice. what model do you have?February 7, 2019 at 4:17 pm #81676
Hi Johnny my sax is YTS-21 purchased on gumtree with a full service and pads replaced as I’m just learning I thought it would be a good start. EricFebruary 7, 2019 at 4:39 pm #81677
Hi Mark that sounds good I wouldn’t mind to catch up sometime soon by the way I get my first lesson This afternoon. EricFebruary 7, 2019 at 10:52 pm #81711
cool, I think the 21 is the model prior to the more recent and well-know 23 but basically the same horn so ya, you’ve got a top student model which will do you well for years to come….good luck!February 16, 2019 at 7:35 am #82088
Another Aussie here, but from Melbourne way, I fell in love with the sound of the sax when I was a kid but never had the chance to learn, almost 64 now, so it’s now or never.
Spent a week researching what would be the first & probably last sax I’d buy.
Settled on a Yanagisawa WO2..bad timing maybe due to renovations..so it’s small steps at the moment..working on my embouchure exercises though.
Enjoying your vids Johnny, the tunes stick in my head for days & I swear I can here you play when in bed, also the way you explain things are a great help.February 16, 2019 at 4:00 pm #82128
Awesome Kevin congrats on your decision!
not familiar with the WO2 personally but know the Yani to be a very good brand so you’ll be good there.

I should mention it’s an Alto, shame to touch it, the shine is really something.
