Thanks for the "suggestion". If I had two (or four) candles, AND I wanted to do it myself, I sure as sh*t would have.Have you no candle and sax to check for yourself?
Thoroughly confused by this post.But the air pressure cannot push the pad cup open.
Low air pressure differential at the supply to begin with, fighting
Beefy springs, big human hand forces, etc.
The air pressure from blowing is the size of a rounding error ...
But you would not need the air supply to make the pad cup move in order to make a candle flicker.
You WOULD need a fabulously large leak, very close proximity to the candle(s), and maybe some asbestos gloves.
With that kind of leaks, no candles needed.
Yes, the multiple arms *might* be able to provide more stability.Thoroughly confused by this post.
Would the additional arms simply allow a more evenly applied/distributed force onto the pad, reducing leaks when there is 'borderline' leak/issue with a cup/pad?
No one has said that air pushes open any pads.Yes, the multiple arms *might* be able to provide more stability.
Breathing through the sax cannot cause a leak. Period.
I've known side Bb vibrations to be an issue also.The only vibration problems come on Eb/C rollers. It defies my logic and raise my BS alert.
I would go further and say that after the Selmers, the Antigua completely bowled me over. Which is interesting because I really like some Selmers.Pete said he like the tenors better than Selmers he had been testing. I have contacted all the music stores within a 3 hour drive, but no one has a soprano in stock.
That was in your first thread on the ProOne sop, and you learned that the answer is no. This thread was supposed to be for speculation about the features.As I asked in the beginning, has anyone actually played one of these, especially the soprano?
My apologies, you are right. I did not realize to which thread I was responding.That was in your first thread on the ProOne sop, and you learned that the answer is no. This thread was supposed to be for speculation about the features.
Look, someone has to be the trailblazer when a brand-new model appears. If you're really interested in this sax, just order one and try it out. It's not that expensive. You may love it. The worst that can happen is you won't like it, and will have to resell it. You'll take a loss, but it won't be gigantic.
Buy it from a British dealer and ship it here. Have you seen the Antigua prices over there? At sax.co.uk, the ProOne Alto is $1499, and the ProOne tenor is only $1688. Just wait for the soprano to appear.The street price on the sopranos is at least $2750. That is a lot to me right now, and for that much, there a lot of options in used saxes in great condition.
It is a huge amount to spend on something you haven't even tried out, and will depreciate hugely as soon as you play it. Obviously used is better value, but I would also say these days there are better new instruments around.My apologies, you are right. I did not realize to which thread I was responding.
