Phil-Tone Soloist

I received this piece some weeks ago in a trade, but only yesterday had the opportunity to take it to a gig. (I have been playing bass clarinet almost exclusively for the past 4 weeks)
It's a short shank soloist D, and it has been worked on and signed by our very own Phil Englemann. I'm not sure what sort of things he did, but this is a great piece. Just the right amount of resistance, with a BIG dark sound that cuts easily through a loud band. Very easy to control on soft volumes too. I'm going to stick with this one (and my HSM) and leave the Link in the drawer.
If you have the chance to get your hands on one of Phil's pieces, do it. You won't be dissapointed.

I'm using standard Légères 3.5. They work great.
Yes, plastic. I've been playing them for the past 8 years or so. Excellent product.
Just order some online would be my advice.
After some gigs and practice, I can say this is really an excellent piece. Here's a picture of me using it.

Yeah well, that gig was recorded for radio. But I have no idea when they will broadcast it.
