Nathan Haines – Conn C-Melody

Glad to see that Nathan Haines is still playing that Conn C-Melody sax, rumour has it that he’s forsaken tenor sax to make the Conn ‘C’ – along with soprano sax and flute – part of his normal playing arsenal.  There’s certainly no mistaking that neck angle or length !

At one time Nathan was using a Link mouthpiece – I assume alto, as it was bored out to fit – but he may well now be using an alto Berg Larsen, which is the mouthpiece used to make that sound sample on Steve’s Aquilasax website.

Here’s a short clip from an instrumental version of the title track on Nathan’s 2008 Album Right Now  – could easily be a C-Melody sax.  << Click on the arrow (left) to hear a clip…
