Has anyone tried a Pillinger LA on tenor? I'm intrigued by the description on Ed's website - can anyone expand on what he means by its "unique tone and response"?

LA – Extra-large barrel chambered and deep open throated model with a unique tone and response. It is huge inside and is in the style of early American mpcs of 1920-30s. It is surprisingly vibrant and edgy and not as dark as the NYTs even though it is much larger inside.

Hi
I tried one when I got a couple of pieces from Mr Pillinger to try. All his products are superbly crafted and he is a true gentleman. I liked the LA but returned it and kept a different piece. Only because on my Comm III which is already quite spread it gave a more spread tone than I wanted. Very nice warm big sound though, and every piece I've ever played of his had played very easily. I think you'd have to see how it matched your horn, maybe. Sorry if this isn't too helpful. Other members will have much more experience of his pieces than me.
