thanks guys…fun to get in the holiday mood. I’m playing a yamaha yts23 w/otto link stm5…that reed’s no good, a 2 1/2, I need to take Johnny’s advice and test out a handful of 2 1/2s / 3s to find a better one, using van doren java reds, rovner ligature and a just joe’s neckstrap. on to-do list is get a yts62, been watching ebay auctions.
totally agree Michael re airflow, that’s something I’d gotten advice on earlier too, is work on sustaining airflow for full notes. I’m 51 living in high altitude Colorado/thin air, so that’s part of it; mostly tho i don’t practice enough lol.
for fat sound I add reverb/fx in post (I use sony vegas) to original sound, like pros do, though I don’t know how, just experimenting…right re backgrounds, I buy video clips from videohive.net to use …
happy holidays, all 🙂
