I don't need another mouthpiece; but . . .
If only a few more folk would own up to having C-mels, we would have close to a normal distribution, with a standard deviation of about 3 1/2 tones.
The C-soprano is between soprano and sopranino I think.Isn't there 2 kinds of C-mel though ? One between Soprano and Alto, and another between Alto and Tenor ?
I do have (just) one. It's a modern Eppelsheim & Reese and it plays pretty well with a Pillinger mouthpiece for C soprano. It's OK but no so well in tune with some Bb soprano mouthpieces.
I particularly enjoyed his comment about the tone:I do. It's a modern Eppelsheim & Reese and it plays pretty well with a Pillinger mouthpiece for C soprano. It's OK but no so well in tune with some Bb soprano mouthpieces.
And my sopranino is a curvie made by Orsi and reviewed (quite harshly) by @Stephen Howard here: Orsi sopranino saxophone review
How very kind of you. It should be easy to wrap ...I particularly enjoyed his comment about the tone:
“Well, I like to think I'm broad-minded - almost every horn has something virtuous tonewise even if it's not to your personal taste, but I couldn't get away from feeling that what this horn lacked was not so much a tone but rather a red nose and a unicycle.”
Clearly you need another sopranino for Christmas.
I have heard someone play a silver Yani that sounded very good, and looked very sparkly.
Yes, I did, didn't I? It's a Chinese Aquilasax Celeste ii. Stephen Howard was given it to review, which he did and then sold it to me after tinkering with it a bit. Tuning's a bit iffy but livable with. It came with a couple of mouthpieces but I usually play it with a Brancher metal J17.
