Yesterday I heard a few soundclips of a walstein tenor being played. I have to say that (bearing in mind it was a soundclip) I was not bowled over by these - I would like to point out that the player was of a very good standard. Does anyone else share my opinion on this? They seem to be mentioned an awful lot and upon checking some websites the prices were going up above £1k for the gold plated versions. To me I feel that these saxes don't have very much depth to their tone for a price above 1k. Does anyone also know what became of the stephanhouser saxes? They used to sell them over here but I can't find anywhere that does now and they don't really seem to have much of a following. just a general lunchtime natter from me!
