Ditto to this AND the posts that follow! After years of testing, and not a few changes, I stick with the HR LInk for Soprano ( metal is too bright). Metal link on tenor ( HR is too dark) and the 30 year old Meyer 5M for alto. The link on alto was too bright for me, but obviously works well for others. Now that I have the Shadow Alto I will probably do further testing, but I am liking the Meyer; however, I did try a new 5M and the new "G" and did not like them at all.NatureColor said:alto use meyer, tenor use link.
