Re: whats this "low pitch" business ??
Low pith means that your saxophones is compatable with the pitch standard that is used today; A=440. Back in the days when your saxophone was made, there were 2 standards of pitch; high pitch (A=457) and low pitch (A=440). Although most saxophones sold in the US were low pitch, a few were hi pitched (mostly European exports) up until the mid 1950's. Today, low pitch is standard worldwide.
