i am new to playing an alto saxophone.
When i play note son the 1st octave everythign sounds ok (for a beginner!)
However, when i used the key for the 2nd octave, i get a horrible fluttering noise (electronic sounding).
If for instance playing E.
In the 1st octave it soudns fine. Then i use the octave key...and get the horrible fluttering sound.
Then i release the octave key and it goes back to a reasonable soundign 1st octave note.
I don't change my blowing or lips or anything. Only the octave key.
But i still get that horrible sound.
Please if anyone can advise on what is goign wrong!
