Whilst it's all still fresh in your mind .... what are the first BIG challenges of moving up to Bari from Tenor (I'm thinking of getting a Bari).

Hi All,
Yes a Bari is fun to play, but IHO the type of bands I play in (Blues/R&B), would not be suitable without a tenor/alto player as well.

John.

P.S. Sorry I was so carried away with my thought process that I didn't say that I love the sound of the Bari :welldone

For me, the major challenges are all physical: the additional weight, closely followed by the wider mouthpiece and looser embouchure required. As well as needing a suitably sized vehicle to transport it!

But it is FUN!:):):)

Very nice Chris! Makes me want a Bari even more! The things that put me off is:

1. I don't have a car / forklift! :)))
2. I struggle with an Ebonite Tenor Mouthpiece (hence why I only play metal) so I think a Bari M'pce would be a real struggle for me!

The next Gerry Mulligan in the making! Looking forward to the next sound clip!

I beg to differ. I'm the only horn player in the blues/R&B band pictured left - and I only play bari in it. Works fine. :)

I'm with Nick on this, I play tenor and bari, and for the tunes that I play the bari, they sound great. Most of these are either blues numbers or folk/rock type thing.

It's just a matter of taste. When I used to back Julie Driscol, the only time I used my bari (a Buescher) was when she sang "Hit the Road Jack".
