Only had a short go on it so far, but it's really easy to play, very free blowing, quickly tried about 4 different reeds on there and it liked them all...pretty easy altissimo. I went for 10/10 brightness, 10/10 volume, small chamber, step baffle...in fluorescent lime. Not my most understated bit of kit! Sounds very loud and punchy, but playing it in my spare room isn't a great measure of volume/projection - most saxophone stuff sounds loud in there. I need to get to know it a bit more but first impressions are good. I'll try to get a recording up sometime next week, and I'll try it out properly at an outdoor wedding gig I've got next Saturday.Impressions on playability ?
I didn't really like the ligature that came with it - seemed to come loose pretty easily, so I swapped it for a rovner style one that I had on a saxscape piece. I quite like the contrast, it looks like a big chocolate lime sweet.
