That's because you hear though your thumb!Swapping between a brass thumb rest and a plastic one, the difference is immediately noticeable - to me. Maybe not to a listener.
Probably the lacquered K91, but.........
Out of curiosity, could you describe the differences between the different models that you tested?I have both a Sequoia 'Lemon' alto and a soprano
Descriptions are necessarily approximate and what works for a player doesn't work for another (and the marketing department has a very short temper).Out of curiosity, could you describe the differences between the different models that you tested?
From the Sequoia homepage, the classic lacquered should be warm, silver be more modern, projection and useful for a pop sound, lemon rather broad and very broad dynamic range but less projection, booster seems to be the best of both worlds being broad plus projection.
I find those descriptions hard to follow and it would be interesting to know how an accomplished player experiences them in real life.
