I had the chance to try the tenor at a recent promotion day in a music shop and almost bought it straight away had it not been for the money. I am interested in an expert opinion on the sound. Up to now, I firmly believed this was chiefly due to the player and the mouthpiece, and that the nuances between different horns at my beginner to intermediate level play no role at all. In other words, it's all in the mind. I would really like to hear some opinions. Unfortunately, when I tried the Custom RAW Tenor I only had my mouthpiece but not my own sax (Bauhaus Wallstein MS 2 gold lacquer) for comparison. Did I do well in saving my money?
