It is the same one. That was the first time I played it and this the second time. In between I was playing a 1935 Ladyface, but that one had to go to the repairman.
I also have a 1932 Transitional with Ladyface (that I'm going to sell). The tuning on the Conns is as good as on my VI, maybe just a bit different. On the Transitional it is even better than on the VI.
The keywork on the NW1 you have to get used to, also on the Transitional, but the 10m is really comfortable.
Wow! Smooth band members, love the Black & white video. Nice artistic touch. Your playing is spot on, really enjoyable music.
That is a tenor and not an C melody correct? Just had to ask.
Thank you for sharing.
You must have quite the ear to feel like the tuning on these horns are not different from a M6.
I've not played any of the vintage conns, but everyone says they are more difficult to play in tune than more modern instruments.
Modern instruments being the M6 to current corns...
Great performance from the entire band and a great sound from you on the horn.
I find his recommendation strange as I see many pros playing these horns. Troy Roberts, Tivon Penticot, Walter Blanding, Charles Lloyd, Joe Lovano at one point as well. Also, I have a friend that has a 10M but likes his NW better. Says it's lighter and sounds better.
I'm in the market for a horn and am looking at a 106xxx NWI in silverpate, with brass on inside if bell, that has been overhauled by Emilio Lyons here in Boston.
A question to the OP, does your horn have the rounded G#, the little round Eb palm key and a bis key that is hard to reach? If so, did it take some time to get used to those key touches or did you modify them?
