• Grease your neck cork before you start playing
• To prevent hand fatigue and cramping, always use a neckstrap when playing your saxophone
• Put the plastic end plug into your instrument before putting the saxophone in its case
• Swab the mechanism of the instrument to remove any fingerprints
• Check all the screws to make sure they are tightened up and oiled. Damage or fouling of screws may lead to slops in mechanism and interference with normal tone-hole closing by the pads.
Timely preventive maintenance of the instrument can considerably extend its life
• Check your cork gaskets to make sure they are fit for use
• Clean your mouthpiece using a brush and warm water
• Take advantage of SOUNDS GOOD services for annual check-ups of your instrument. Our free-of-charge technical diagnostics will help you make an informed decision as to preventive repair and/or maintenance to make sure your instrument sounds its best.
SOUNDS GOOD recommends to keep all the maintenance materials separately
from the instrument to prevent darkening of the cover and tarnishing
of the metal parts of your instrument.
