I'm now playing a PPT 7* and have a big grin on my face!
All the best,
All the best,
Hi Tom,Let me be the first to congratulate you on your abundant joy at having one of those mouthpieces - do you play whilst looking like a Cheshire Cat, or does the joy come later?
Never played a PPT - I only go for Handmade Swiss or American pieces myself;}!
Glad you're a happy bunny!!!
Hi Jimu,Oh yeah Chris tell us more.
How does it play/sound.
The colour looks cool!
Me too. Problem is I can't even get enough made for tenor. No I'm not selling thousands, just that they take a long time to make.I wish they'd do one for soprano..
Hi Kev,Sounds great. Am trying to grow into a used 8*. And when I get it right it's fabulous. But it needs a lot of side grip from my mouth to stop the squeaks. It sounds great! Even at my low level, it's easy to switch from mellow to smooth, to loud and edgy! Really fancy an onyxite one. Or even better, the one and only gold one. But that's going to be far too expensive.
I don't understand(In case anyone noticed, my cat Chester replied earlier and no he doesn't make them, but sometimes he makes a useful comment when I'm playtesting them)
I'd not twigged that you'd got one as well. The 7* seems to suit me fine, but without trying an 8* I can't say for sure. Thus far it's been an easy transition from my Java to the PPT, where as I think the 8* might have provided a bit of a challenge.
I'm currently running it on a Rico Jazz Select 2M and it sounded fine with a Vandoren v16 2.5 that I took out of my reed guard and put on by mistake yesterday. I'm beginning to think the intonation is better as well, it feels like I'm doing less to bring certain notes into tune.
What ligature are you using?
I better do some practice on "Jumpin' jam" then ;}I've heard your take of Jumpin' jam with the Java, and I think it will be interesting to hear the same with the PPT. Once you get used to it that is.
Hi koumou,I've heard your take of Jumpin' jam with the Java, and I think it will be interesting to hear the same with the PPT. Once you get used to it that is.
Hi Tom,That's some Ligature......:welldone
What's it called, again? I must have one
Hi Koumou,That was quick. You've been practicing, tempo's gone to 180. The PPT to me, sounds fuller but brighter than the Java, what do you think?
