I believe I did it by leaving the sax connected by the strap in my lap
while grabbing the clarinet off the stand. That's what I do in the big
band I play in for that switch. The switch back is fairly simple that way.
Clarinet back to stand, sax back to playing position.

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
