The first of its kind: a portable, airline safe saxophone specific emergency repair tool. Made from medical grade steel, aluminum and powder coated for durability.
In my decade of repairing saxophones there’s nothing worse than getting a frantic call from a player on a gig, session or on tour with a horn that all of a sudden ‘isn’t playing like it did yesterday!’ The cause is usually a minor fix, but made all the more complicated by the fact that there’s no time to run it to a local tech, tools and the only option is some half assed McGyvering to get the sax functional and save the day. Hence, I set out to create a multi tool that would incorporate the most necessary components to put the power back in the players hands.
2mm screwdriver blade (for palm keys and side keys)
3mm screwdriver blade (for right/left hand stack keys)
4mm screwdriver blade (for pivot screws and adjustment screws)
reed leveling tool
key chain ring
includes travel pouch
complies with TSA regulations to be brought in carry on luggage
These tools allow you to easily tighten those pesky rods that always seem to work their way out at the wrong time, fix the most common regulation issues to the G#, reinsert and adjust the tension to springs and level your reeds when they warp to keep you up an running; all in a svelte package that fits neatly in your case or on a keychain and is something I truly believe every player should have.
