Hi Rob, I?ve had a little practice on the Tenor and it?s much better. I played a gig on my bari at the weekend and the difference was immense. It sounded fantastic and is much more responsive in the upper registers, not just?where the original problem was. It was like playing a new instrument!??Also, thanks for the advice on new a new reed. I was very impressed with the Legere?synthetic reed you recommended. It?makes a great tone?and your advice on making the switch was spot on.
