Have a question? Interested in getting your horn repaired? Want to buy something on the site but you’d like to chat first and see if it really is the best fit for you? Want to see about selling or trading your saxophone to me?
*NOTE: I am not currently able to accept new clients for overhaul services. I apologize for the inconvenience! Please feel free to call if I can help with advice. If you are a past client looking to get another horn worked on, please call about availability.
FOR GENERAL QUESTIONS THAT I CAN USE FOR THE PODCAST please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will record a weekly-ish podcast with answers so that others may benefit- especially since I find myself answering similar questions over time. I will only use your name and location (e.g. “Joe from Nebraska asks…”) if you tell me you’d like that, otherwise I will leave the questions origin unsaid. This is obviously not as convenient for you as catching me on the phone, but remember you’d possibly be helping others with similar questions and could in this way contribute to the saxophone community by simply having the right kind of question and some patience.
FOR OTHER STUFF, if you are in a hurry, or if you’d simply rather not have your question answered in audio podcast format, please call me at 919-901-1191. If I have a hand available, I typically answer the phone between 10am-5pm EST Monday through Thursday. Leave a message if I don’t pick up and I will get back to you.
If you are interested in a trade or selling me an instrument, please send as many high-resolution photos as you can fit in an email.
I work from my home in the countryside outside Durham, North Carolina USA, and I do ship internationally.
Please be aware: I do not respond to Facebook messages or texts or LinkedIn or what-have-you. Just calls and emails. Its too hard to stay organized otherwise.
If you’ve bought a sax elsewhere and want me to take a look at photos to see if you got a decent deal, sorry, I can’t help you. It takes about an hour for me to evaluate a saxophone based on photos alone- if the photos are even good enough and usually they aren’t- and the results are not guaranteed anyways. I get asked 5-10 times per week, and I simply don’t have that much time to give away for free. If you want to pay me my shop hourly rate AND you’ve got tons of super great photos, I can give you an opinion but frankly you’d be better off taking it somewhere in person for an examination if you have the ability.
