Thanks a bunch! i does indeed help! I'm a lifelong alto player and I just bought an 80's Selmer-Bundy II on the super cheap ($150). I'm getting used to the different embouchure and starting to sound like "me" but I think I will be searching for mouthpieces before too long. What brand and strength reed do you use?Thanks I use an 'early babbitt' Otto Link STM mouthpiece (9) on a Conn 'transitional' (pre 10M) horn here. Hope that helps.
Ah thanks! In all seriousness, it needs a bit of work to keep it playing as well as it should do... I get quite a lot of gunk build up on the table, and if it's not cleaned (if it gets really bad, then it needs filing off) then it's hard to get the piece sounding evenly. But yeah, when it's right, it's a gorgeous mouthpiece on any horn I've ever played.Really beautiful, thanks Tim. I wish I could get my early Babbit STM to sound like that!
I've never heard you play anything that isn't highly enjoyed, Tim......and I've listened to everything of yours, I've come across. Thanks for another sweet listening experience.Hi all - first video featuring this lovely transitional Conn tenor, and some piano too. 'My Foolish Heart', hope it's enjoyed
Ooh great question. The first thing to say is that it often takes me a while to decide which one to take to a gig... they're both such great horns. It's the first time, I think, where my 'main' and 'backup' horn are actually equals.Nice Tim! How would you characterize the sound of the transitional in relation to your 10m?
