Thanks for making and posting the pictures.Fist and third picture is the 42, second and fourth the core
I always thought the higher the baffle the darker the sound, so I'm surprised if the Core sounds darker. I wish there was more information on this piece from people who have played it. I'm very curious and tempted, because I loved my Bunte 42, which was made a little darker for me at my request.Interesting. The first eye catching details are the more pronounced roll over baffle at the tip
and the thinner rails towards the tip.
When I had a 42 (7 tip) the one thing that struck me was that it sounded fairly bright in the upper register.
Especially when pushing more air. Now I wonder how the darker sound relates to the more pronounced baffle.
The sound clips do not sound bright at all to me. Well, perhaps it was just me when playing the 42.
Leon, IMO it's the angle of the baffle area just behind the tip that determines a lot in how bright a piece can sound. A high but short roll-over baffle can sound brighter then a long sloping high baffle without roll-over area just behind the tip. I can play a high baffle Ponzol or Berg /0 darker then a Link if I want (it's also highly depending on the air speed you play with).I agree. That's why I was surprised when poster said the Core had a more pronounced baffle than the 42, and yet sounded darker.
