Re: 1955 Conn Stencil
Thanks to everyone for the info so far. It's been very helpful. I'm not concerned with his learning the key work of different instruments, nor getting used to different mouth pieces. He's a sponge for learning and adapting when he has a genuine passion for playing. He hadn't even handled a sax before last summer and plays better than anyone in his school band. However if anyone knows the difference in key work (and tone) between the Vito and the Conn, I would love to know.
I was a recording engineer and worked with some sax players but never really knew what they were playing, just knew what I thought sounded good, so this is a new experience for me to view the other side of playing music. Also, looking for some recommmendations for inexpensive mouth pieces and if anyone has any recommendations for any honest websites that may offer them for less than retail. As far as listening to everything adults say, you boys must not remember your pubescent years.
My son clearly has his own mind and with hormones kicking in, he makes an extra special effort to go out of his way if there is a chance he can prove me wrong.
Think back now. I'm sure you can remember those days.=0) Anyway thanks again for the info and any more insight will be greatly appreciated.
