it depends
by: Jack Dagg

Well, it really depends on several factors such as your physiology, music style/warmth desired, mouthpiece of choice, the specific model of horn, etc. With a rovner MP I've been able to achieve warmer tonal quality. Let us know some specifics and we'll give you some more ideas.

I'm not sure
by: Marie

Well actually I'm not really sure because I'm only a beginner, and my music teacher thinks i have real talent so he wants me to play sax. I guess I just need a good quality sax with 'thin' material used so its not that hard to blow. Thanks so much for both your answers!
