Hi,

I tried one vintage HR Berg Larsen fro tenor, and it played just fantastic. It was not the boat table but a later one, probably from 60’s and had a 105/2 SMS (offset) stamped on it. Now I really want to try one of those older ones. My intuition says I should go for number 3 chamber, to get a slightly smoother sound. But the early ones even didn't have the chamber size indicated on the mpc, only tip opening. Is it so that the old ones from 1940's did actually have different chamber sizes but only one?

I had a boat table" model and didn't like it as well as my 1970s model HR Berg. 3 chamber are hard to find. I find them a bit too dark.

"Is it so that the old ones from 1940's did actually have different chamber sizes but only one?"

I think that is probably true.
