I’m a high school student looking to buy a good, bright bari piece for jazz ensemble. I have a V16, but it’s only a b5, and is a bit to dark for my liking. I have been playing my teacher’s Berg 110/2 sms, and love the piece, but from what I understand, the new models are wildly inconsistent, and often don’t even work out of the box. I am currently between the RPC high baffle, the Arnold Montgomery Aras, and the Francois Louis Spectruoso. If anyone has any experience with any of these pieces, or know another to try, I would appreciate it greatly!
