  • Yay, new forum !

    Welcome to this new area, a forum dedicated to wind instruments.
    Sax, bass clarinet, kazoo, harmonica, french horn, didgeridoo, bassoon, everyone's welcome.

    sunburstbasser and I will be your mods for the time being.
    I'm mainly a half-decent bass player and singer but also the not-so-well-known worst tenor sax player in the World. Anyway, I love brass sections and wind instruments as a whole.

    I hope this area will become a warm and welcoming place to chat and share info about wind instruments.
    Feel free to use this thread to introduce yourself. I'm pretty sure HC forums are full of unrecognized wind musicians.

    Also, please pass the word to your fellow wind/brass musicians. They're not used to come to HC forums and may enjoy it.

    Regarding rules, no breeze, apply the general Terms of Use and everything shall be fine.

    Have fun and blow that horn !

          I still have it knocking about the place somewhere actually. I think my mother had aspirations to learn to play, never really caught on though

            Me too, I have a soprano saxophone lying around. Old, beat up thing. Perhaps I should try to relearn it; I wouldn't think the neighbours'd appreciate it, though.

                Me too. Still have my alto. It's 40 years old now. Not worth fixing.

                It might still honk a little.

                  I played reeds for years, but have not picked one up in ages. But I AM itchin' to get a new sax at some point, and even have spouse approval, so I may be visiting and participating in here from time to time. Fair warning.

                  Congrats on the new forum Jazz. :thu:

                    I've never taken lessons or been good at sax but I toy with it.
                    One day I may take the time to be a real player.

                          If nothing else, thanks for the props.
                          Do you play any wind instrument ?

                            I play Alto, Tenor, and Bari saxes, although I only own an Alto.
                            I also play Trimpet and Tuba, but not nearly as well as sax. I'm actually better at sax than bass.

                              I've never liked how sax's sound and stuff, so I won't stalk anyone in this forum...
