WOW, There charging £4955.00 for the Sheppard edition.So is this new edition Raw TJ tenor soooo much better than a normal TJ raw which they say is an amazing tenor and costs half the price,we need your thought Jules ,you play a RAW so whats the findings between the 2.Plus whats the XS version ??????????
Obviously the XS is the saxophone equivalent of XL (Extra Large) - it's the sax for Real Men. Or at that price Rich Men.))
Or play by itself like Andy Sheppard...
Maybe it stands for Xtra Sound, Xtra Sax, Xtra Sheppard, Xtra Special? Sounds like more marketing b!@@#$%t
Jules told me today the score.The new XS has just a touch more hand finish and set up plus its proper bare brass,might be atd more free blowing compared to the normal RAW.The Sheppard went through Andys hands about 4 times ,each time he changed things.It blows darker they say.Feels lighter in weight also.
WOW, There charging £4955.00 for the Sheppard edition
that's a real "Fin de siècle" overpriced hype/ Bullshot price, for a taiwanese factory horn, imho.
For £5k could get you a original lacquer, full overhauled mk 6 tenor, a vintage berg larsen or guardala, a box of reeds and all of Andy Sheppard's CDs. And a bag of chips and a taxi home.
BTW.: anyone going to the launch in London?
