Sure sounds like a Francois Louis to me.

Think of the tenor players that have that "thing" in the sound like this... Lovano, Tim Ries, and David Sachez.

It's got a similar thing to the sound because the FL chamber is unique to itself. You have a Berg type baffle, medium/large chamber, squeezing into a small chamber, back out to a large chamber in the back bore. Stick a ring with a bunch of putty on it into a Berg and you essentially have the FL design. These are the pieces that people will be paying serious money for in the future. Lots of the great players of today are using them (Lovano, Tim Ries, Sanchez, Bob Berg, Tony Lakatos, Ralph Lalama, etc.), and there are hardly any of those handmade pieces around. Nothing else sounds like an FL either... Listen to Lovano on a Link - and listen to him with the FL.
