After a slow period, I was finally able to use the Selmer on a gig. I know I have said this before, but I may have found my setup. Pre gig, I went back and forth between the Soloist and my Link. On either one of my horns, the Selmer had the power that the Link had but more depth and complexity. To avoid temptation to switch on the gig, I left the Link home and did the entire gig on the Soloist. It really sounded great and was very easy to play. Since I have been practicing on it and adjusting to it, I am able to get great results on either of my horns. It fought me a little on the Chu at first, but now it plays with no problem. I may be selling my other pieces and looking for another Soloist for Brian to work on.
