One Note At A Time
One of my proudest endorsements are the alto, baritone, soprano and tenor saxophones manufactured by GTsax based in Taiwan.
I knew from the very first notes that these horns were going to help me convey what I feel in my heart.
From my recent trip to Shanghai for the Music China 2018 Trade Show the infamous the Ken Beason stumbled upon a booth also from Taiwan selling mouthpieces. I tried the alto first and was blown away at the response it had on my horn. I also grabbed a tenor piece and it has become my number one piece for my tenor. I put Avngur mouthpiece manufacturer in contact with GT Sax and now they are collaborating.
I visited the Avngur booth again this year at china Music 2019 and discovered they make a soprano mouthpiece that I am happy to report is blowing my mind. A great piece!!
Having the best ligature on your mouthpiece is a choice you make and it is very personal. I use Silverstein Ligatures on all my saxophones. They give my mouthpieces the support they need to optimize the sound I need to hear!
Have you ever wondered why Tycoon Percussion makes the best congas, bongos, shakers etc?
Well, its because they are the best. I have the privilege of being a Tycoon Percussion artist. I don't perform with anything other than Tycoon.

One of my first endorsements and probably the most important is the great saxophone straps from Neotech. Don't leave without this strap and Neotechs case slings. Not only does the strap alleviate the pressure on my neck but the case slings distribute the weight of your sax case across your shoulder as you trudge through the airport.
The Custom Shop Tenor Saxophone is going to be a hit when people realize that the great Ken Beason designed and assembled his creation at his workshop in the U.S.A.
