Found a few videos of Scott Robinson on the c-melody (great!).
Not a lot of choice ...

Dang! I've had several CMels and every time I played one, it sounded like a sick duck! These examples blow me away. They sound like a tenor. Now, I've got gassed. Inspired, too!
Thanks for these!

I've often wondered why these are tenors and not low altos. Particularly the straight necked Conn.

Sounds great, Dave.

The Raaven youtube clip is great. What a cool concept for a trio.
