That's what I thought (and I wonder why...) I did the conversion to dollars and the price is about the same as well - $177 - so they're not selling them at an over inflated price either.Morry said:Looks the same as this piece, I think.
That's funny. His copy says how the design and experience led to the development of the new piece. What a lying sack of...oh, never mind.Selmer's_glu said:
I've played two of the SBV ones I show on my thread. These had a different baffle and chamber to the P Mauriat one in the photo - little to no baffle and a very open chamber like a Link and they actually costs a little more ($199) because there's more hand finishing to them. They play really good, just like an old school tenor sound you'd expect from a Link style piece. My teacher liked it so much that he bought my demo one so I had to order another! He plays it as his primary tenor piece and he gets a lovely, warm, dark, husky tone from it too. They're CNC lathed then hand finished and the gold plating is very high quality so all in all they're good pieces with a lot of personal attention to each one. The built in lig works well.spiderjames said:Has anyone played one of these? Do they play better than say, a stock link for $129.00
Yeah I've been biting my tongue on not saying anything about that for a good two months :| They are good pieces though if you ignore all the BSMorry said:That's funny. His copy says how the design and experience led to the development of the new piece. What a lying sack of...oh, never mind.
