Thank you all for your feedback! Tzadik, do you think it would be a nice match with a Conn New Wonder?I had one of the very first made: https://www.facebook.com/509654555758777/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1271505966240295
Very dark mouthpiece but still "alive".
Works fine on normal bore horns that have a good focus and a correct amount of brightness.
On my horn (R1 Jazz), the Reso sounds way too big and beafy... I had a Reso #8*, probably for this kind of mouthpiece a #7* would have been a better choice.
I haven't tried the Drake Reso, but I do have one of his discontinued metal "Stubbie" models which has a large chamber likeThank you all for your feedback! Tzadik, do you think it would be a nice match with a Conn New Wonder?
Nice playing and sound, thank you very much!!!Being a huge fan of Ben Wendel and having played Aaron’s Son of Slant before I was crazy about the Reso when he announced it. And it is a pretty niece piece that I could voice to be really bright in the upper register and it was nice and dark in the lower. However I play a Martin Committee III which is rather dark and a little spread - no Selmer focus - and I just ended up playing the more controlled and „tight“ Acoustimer II by Ted Klum. Sold the Reso last week. But it is an awesome piece if you have a more focused horn and like the sound - one of the best I‘ve played.
Here I’m playing it on a gig https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=9jy0TIFBeDY
