Cheers Kev. I realize Thomann stock them - their postage rate to this part of the world whether it is a box of reeds, mouthpiece or baritone sax (30kg or less) is 50 euros. Might be a purchase in the New Year...They're still made, Thomann stock them. Just search for ESM mouthpiece.
.... don't foret the sax stand, the hard case, baritone sax tutor books and DVDs, cork grease, recording equipment and a roady thrown in for good measure...You're right there Ivan - it pays to buy the bari sax, the reeds and the mouthpiece all in one hit - then it's cheap as chips...))
We keep each other very happy and up todate with new gear.A pleasure as always to deal with you.I'm glad its there before xmas after the blunder.All ends well and it is a wee bonny mp on the end of your sax.Have a great chrimbo.Mouthpiece arrived. Actually my son spotted the packet this morning on the ground outside the back door. Presumably the postman had kindly taken it round the house when he tried to deliver it yesterday and we were out. One soaking wet parcel, but fortunately the mouthpiece itself was nice and dry and suffered no ill effects.
It looks great in the blue shiny material. I was surprised that the baffle is so radical - high and long before dropping off sharply into the chamber. Quite like my old Brilhart Level Air which is a great piece.
This ESM has loads of volume - I can understand why Davey liked it so much. The tip opening is maybe a little wide for me, but I'm sure it will work well with the right reed strength. Intonations seems good too, which isn't always the case with high baffle mouthpieces.
Looking forward to taking this one out on rehearsals and gigs - it looks spectacular on my gold lacquer Selmer Mk7.
Thanks Davey for another easy and friendly deal.
