Andy H's Saxophone

Ask Katy

A question for Andy Hamilton. What sort of saxophone is he playing on 'Union of a Snake' on the 'Live from London' DVD? Thanks, Kat.

"The sax on Union Of The Snake is a soprano sax... but it's slightly unusual, because most sopranos are straight like a clarinet but this one, made by Yanagisawa, is curved like a regular saxophone.

The straight ones have more of an oboe type sound but the curved ones have a more saxy sound. I have a few of each kind but I like the Yanagisawa curved sax.

Love, Andy Hamilton"
