You could have a leak
by: Anonymous

Leaks in a saxophone often show as an ability to fully form low notes. Even when the leak is high up in the saxophone. Might be worth having a technician take a look at your horn.

Proper Air

Try breathing deep from the bottom of your stomach and blow hot air like your fogging up a mirror.

Everyone is having the same problem of hitting a low note at the first place (except for baritone sax and so on with the super low sound)...to make it easier try not to give a much pressure to your mouthpiece and the reed instead of slowing down the speed of air n give a warmer shot of air...hope its work...
