without wanting to aggravate anyone (!),could someone explain what it is that is so attractive about SML TENORs please.
I've had a good look at SaxPics site and realise that they have very good build quality, adjusting screws, various giblets, and at least with the GOldMeda, RTHs, but what is it soundwise that chracterises these horns ?

The Big Bell also is something different.
Also soundwise it's got a hugh sound from bottom end to top.

In ieder geval is het een goed sax die hier in nederland voor een fatsoenlijk bedrag gekocht kan worden.

ik twijfel tussen een SML, dat duur zilver Ponzol op maarktplaats en een TH&C, of wel nog een Serie II. Momenteel heb ik een licht voorkeur voor het TH&C. Enige ideen ?

madav if you want a good sound for a reasonable price go for The SML in silver or laqeur.

Yust got a Silver SML tenor sounds great.

Madav, I guess they are all very nice.
At least I would like to own one of each *:o)
(Specially a nice silver TH&C, but that's just for looks, never played one)

Big sound, very warm and tender when you want, agressive like an animal when you want ... it's just a very sexy saxophone!
