In this video HysonMusic.com compares the
Selmer AS-500 Alto Saxophone to the LJ Hutchen Mark II Alto Saxophone.
Mike Dopazo, a New York City based professional saxophone player joins us in sound sampling both instruments.
Mike uses a standard Vito student model mouthpiece with a #4 Rico Royal Reed in these demonstrations.
Reverb was added in post to accommodate small computer speakers and the low-bandwidth of YouTube audio streams. The links below can be used to access the audio track of each instrument sound sample without effects, in full .WAV format. These are best listened to on high-end audio systems or good quality headphones.
These WAV files are uncompressed, 48000hz, 16-bit files. These sound clips are longer than the demonstrations in the video.
