 Re: Doubling clarinet with tenor sax?

Sax is very easy to learn, especially as it is pitched in octaves.

I've never played a show book where the tenor wasn't expected to play clarinet. In the Jones/Lewis band, Eddie Daniels (great clarinetist) played the tenor book.

Alexis advice on reed/piece setup is good, as a starting point.

I own 15 different instruments and don't think I got any of them new...like cars, they depreciate quickly, and well cared for horns play just as well as new ones, especially modern construction, those made after 1980 (my tenor is a 1983 Yamaha Selmer mark vi copy that plays great: in tune with good keywork and plays better than the marks I've owned..but it did cost $1,500....not much for a professional grade instrument).

I'm not sure you would be happy with a cheap horn, as the intonation and build quality would be suspect and you would have a difficult time selling it.
