It's a "squeeze throat" design. I think that they are very consistent in their production. If I had the funds, I'd get Joe at Soprano Planet to build me one - everybody seems to say good things about his soprano pieces and he knows a ton about sopranos and their quirks. However, the Bari works well for me - not perfect, but better than a bunch of others that I've tried.
