To keep your saxophone in the best condition, please follow
* Always consult your teacher if you are not sure how to put together your
* NEVER force the parts of your instrument together.
* Hold on to the bell and neck when attaching the neck to the body. To avoid
bending the neck, hold on to the neck when attaching the mouthpiece to the
neck assembly. Avoid holding the keys when assembling your saxophone.
* Use cork grease on your saxophone as little as possible. When you do apply
cork grease you will need to rub it into the cork.
* When properly used, cork grease should allow you to assemble
your saxophone without using excessive force.
* Do not leave the reed attached to the mouthpiece. This
will shorten the life of the reed and cause it to collect
* Wipe off your fingerprints from the keys after every use.
A clean, non-treated cotton cloth will work the best. If
you do choose to use a treated polishing cloth be sure
that it is for the proper finish. Using the wrong treated
cloth could cause scratches.
* Clean out the moisture from your instrument with an absorbent
cotton drop swab after every use by inserting it in the
small end first. Removing the moisture from your saxophone
before putting it away each time will prolong the life
of the pads.
* Please do not leave your neck strap attached to your instrument
while in the case.
* Always store your instrument in its case with the lid closed
when not in use. This will prevent any excess tarnishing and
lower the risk of damage.
* Do not put anything (including sheet music) inside the
case with your instrument that does not belong. Closing
the case with extra contents can cause damage to the delicate
keys. Also, make sure that all the latches are securely
closed before transporting your instrument.
