Anyone playing one?

I helped Charlie out (at least I hope I did) by testing a prototype several years ago. I happened to pop over to gigdust.com to see if the page was still up (we all know of the issues the business since his death), and the picture of the BBQ got me wondering if anyone was playing that piece.

Wonder if runyon is still making them etc. It was a good playing mpc.

Just some mental meanderings. ;)

I sold mine, Bill. It played really well and Charlie did a great job on it. Very easy to play. The only problem was I was somewhat limited in where/when I could play it. And, although they don't call the shots, my section mates and leader of a big band I played in hated it; too thin and shrill (in their opinions) for that context. But it sure worked well in a very loud soul-music band I played in.

I went from it to a Ponzol M1 which played just as easily but had more body. But to relate to your question - I don't play mine anymore.

I also had one and sold it. I'm partial to bright tenor pieces but even I didn't like it with the spoiler. Even without the spoiler it still played easy but I found it lacked "sound". Like Gary I bought a Ponzol and still play and love it today. Ended up selling it on Ebay and took about a 100 buck loss.
