Traveling with a Bari Sax?

Traveling with a Bari Sax? Topic: Case sax
July 20, 2019 / By Lennon
Question: Next spring I am traveling out of state with my baritone saxophone. I am very worried that my instrument will be damaged when it is put on the plane. What I am trying to ask is what case would be ideal to use for traveling so that my saxophone will sustain minimum if not, no damage?

for something as big and easily damaged as a bari sax you may want a plywood crate, reinforced at the corners with metal and with a LOT of foam padding in it- the horn should not be able to move at all! This will (of course) cost a ton to ship on a plane, but it will be a lot less than buying another sax or getting it repaired when someone steps on the case and crushes it. You might want to consider having your bari shipped by UPS or Federal Express- they'll treat it better than luggage handlers.

Jair Originally Answered: What are the differences between the Italian dialect of Rome (Dialetto Romano) and the dialect spoken in Bari?
First of all, they aren't dialects but real languages. Italy wasn't a united Country until about 1866 and until 150 years ago we spoke our local LANGUAGES, one day Tuscany's one was chosen to become the Italian official language, since our local ones are very difficult to understand to someone who isn't a native of that specific region. What I mean...do you read my firm? It is written in Piedmont's language, and if you don't study it, and you're not a native of Piedmont, you can't understand it. An Italian from Puglia can't understand an Italian from Trentino if they talk each other in their local languages. This is the reason why the Italian was born. Dialetto Romano is understood by everyone in Italy, since is a language which is brother of the Tuscany's one, every language of central Italy is connected, we can say they are ''the real Italian languages'', whereas northern Italian languages, for example, are called ''Gaul Romances'', they are a blend of Celtic and Latin. I don't know very well the origins of the southern's languages, but I can say to you that EVERY Italy's local language is NOT a dialect of the Italian, they are languages which come from Latin. If you study one of these languages, it's like studying Spanish or French...if you studied French you will be able to understand my Piemontese's language, a French can effectively understand it, while an Italian can't. What does this mean? The answer is our local languages represent OUR CULTURES, OUR PAST, OUR DIFFERENT HISTORIES, unfortunately there are some Italians who think a person who speaks them is illiterate, the truth is that a person who can speak Italian and his local language is bilingual. Unfortunately is some cities of north-west Italy people can't speak their local languages, since someone told them they are vulgar dialects , but in the north-east people talk each other in their languages, Italians from Veneto, Trentino, Friuli, Emilia...they have never stopped speaking their languages! The southern Italians speak their local languages, they are right, it's culture. If you'll learn the Dialetto Romano, your friend will be able to understand you, but you won't be able to understand him when he speaks in Barese. They are VERY different languages. I understand the Romano but I don't get the Barese. Unfortunately there aren't courses of these languages, you should ask to your friend to teach you, watch some videos on Youtube, if you can spend a holiday in Puglia, you will be able to speak it. I would like to thank you because you'd like to learn one of our ''dialects'', I'm happy. In the end: it is IMPOSSIBLE, in Italy, to meet an Italian who speaks without his local accent: he can speak in a perfect Italian, but he has his regional accent, I have Piedmont's accent, I know entirely Italian and I have a perfect grammar but you can't take away from me my accent, I'm very proud of it. The only ones in Italy who speak without any local accent are the movie's dubbers. And I don't want to talk with that accent, I'm not interested, I don't like it.

They are TOTALLY different. Your friend is not completely right when he says that Roman dialect is understood by everyone, as in fact, when spoken tightly it can be hard to understand for a non-Roman. Honestly, I fail to understand why on Earth you would want to learn Roman (or any other) dialect....Italian dialects sound very rude and Roman is one of the rudest....A person speaking dialect is considered cheap and illiterate in Italy. You can tell a well educated Italian by the way he/she speaks: a person speaking with an impeccable grammar and NO accent whatsoever proves to be highly educated. As for the differences between Roman dialect and the dialect spoken in Bari, they range from pronounciation to actual words and verbs: they are totally different. It is impossible to describe them all.

SKB makes cases that are made to ship instruments in and one of these would work great for your trip. I don't recommend shipping it separately. Have you seen those guys throw stuff on and off the trucks?! I wouldn't put the saxophone in a crate-you could even just pad your own case with bubble wrap etc. I have mailed instruments this way.

Choose a destination and run with it. Start saving your money and research your options. There will be some places that you want to see where you are just going to have to eat the tourist prices, so you may as well chew and swallow. For instance, if you have always wanted to go to Paris, it is going to cost you. There are ways of making it more affordable, but it is going to be expensive. Rather than go to a travel agency, go to the library and check out some Frommer's or Lonely Planet make good ones. It does not matter if they are recent or not, but the travel books will give you an idea as to what is available to visit in a country. Rick Steves also has a good travel show that will give you a visual representation of the area you want to visit, I think it is on PBS. After you figure out where you want to go, and what you want to do, start planning. Depending upon where you want to go, the prices will vary according to season. For instance, going to Europe from May to August is going to be expensive, but the prices will drop in the off season - both for airfare and hotel costs (excepting major holidays). Another thing that you can do is just start saving your money and when you get a couple thousand $$ (since you are in MD, you are adjacent to a gateway airport out of the US) start reading the ads in the travel section of the paper and see what specials are available. I have friends in NYC who do this, they'll see an ad to someplace different (maybe it is not someplace on your short list) and the price happens to be right, and they jump on the plane with maybe as little as a week notice. If you don't have a passport, you might want to get one now.

The most beautiful place I have been was Corsica. It is an island south of France. It's not too touristy, and it is absolutely gorgeous! If I were you, I would get a small group of friends (maybe 8) who would like to go on this adventure with you. Look for the cheapest tickets into Western Europe, maybe stop by some major places, depending on where you fly into (Geneva was always pretty cheap). Then I would take a train to southern France and the boat over to the island. Trains are the most inexpensive way to travel over there. I'd rent out a house on the coast with your friends, this makes the cost a lot better when you split it up between you all. There are tons of fun things to do there like scuba diving, canyoning (which is like mountain climbing/hiking through a valley in water while you follow the river. Hard to explain but amazing), cliff jumping, ect. It's amazing. I wish you the best of luck!
