I recently got an HR soprano piece by Ponzol, tip is a 65. It is a very nice piece with a small throat/chamber size similar to a Super Session but with less rollover baffle. In fact, the baffle design is pretty interesting. It has an initial rollover section that is fairly short and not at all extreme, but then the baffle goes slightly concave for a short distance before turning back out again towards the floor. The only other piece I have with this sort of baffle design is my Zagar SBB (tenor). Of course, that piece has a very large chamber. The character is that of a fairly small-chambered soprano piece with a moderately bright and focused sound, and without excessive shrillness. I currently prefer it over my Morgan vintage and Bari HR soprano pieces, which have been among my favorites.
