Question:

I've been playing saxophone for almost 15 years now, focusing primarily on jazz, rock, blues and funk. As I'm nearing the end of my college career, I really am looking to find a mpc that is bright and will cut through electric instruments (I'm in a band that has 2 guitars, bass, drums, latin/aux percussion, and organ/keys). I have heard great things about the Sugal mpcs, mainly the Kirk Whalum and the Super Gonz. What is the difference between the two? Also, if anyone has any mpc suggestions for a brighter funkier sound that would be awesome. Currently, i'm playing on a very old Link 5-star. Thanks!!!

Greg

I woul try a Ponzol M2 or M2+, I own the M2 and it cuts! If you can try one out, it might be a good idea. I also heard the Guardala Super King is very bright and projects very well.

A hard rubber high baffled RPC would do the trick. The more open ones (marked 120 or above) are the loudest (yet cleanest) pieces I've played; metal or hard rubber.

They are half the price and 100x the quality too.

If you want a high baffle mpc, but want to keep the relatively wider profile of your link, might want to consider an SR Fusion or SR Pro if the Fusion is too bright for you.

To put it another way, there are many options for you other than Sugals, and many of us feel they would be a better choice and cost considerably less.........daryl
