Playing my sax at the beach

I am thinking of going down by the beach and playing my sax. I was wondering if the salt air will cause permanent damage to the sax?

Playing my sax at the beach
by: Dominic

I have been playing sax, clarinet and flute since 1951.
I have been repairing instruments since 1978.
My last major concert was for a host of pretty impressive guests, including former President Bill Clinton.
When he was in Boston with Senator John Kerry for a fund-raising event for Senator Ted Kennedy.

I played in the 22-piece John Payne Saxophone Choir at the Park Plaza Castle.

Security was so tight,
the Secret Service did background checks on each musician and we had to leave our instruments at
the door to be searched by White House staff.

If it is a windy day you may get sand under the pads
which is not a good thing.

there is not enough salt in the air to damage any thing regarding your sax. just do not take a dip with it!
