Recommended for saxophone teachers and students, regardless of level. David Demsey, The Saxophone Journal
“Finally: the manual on my instrument!” said one the first reviews of Tipbook Saxophone. And it’s a buyer’s guide too, as well as an owner’s guide, a reference book… Tipbook Saxophone brings you the combined knowledge and expertise of some twenty saxophone makers, reed experts, mouthpiece wizards, and musicians. Written with beginners in mind, an inspiring resource for advanced players, even a reference for pros!
Your best instrument
Tipbook Saxophone helps you buy the instrument that best suits your style and your budget, exploring the material and the design of the instrument, the plating, bell and neck designs, special keys and key systems, ergonomics, pads, and so on. Additional chapters explain everything you need to know about mouthpieces, ligatures, and reeds. Tips on reed adjustment are included, of course, and the Tipcodes in the book give access to short videos showing you how that’s done – and more.
Fingering charts and more
The final chapters shed a light on the history, the family, and the making of the instrument. A glossary and a extended index turn this owner’s guide into a handy reference book. A complete set of fingering charts are the icing on this musical cake. Enjoy!
