Given that, as you state, there are few such horns in the world, and few R&C saxellos, and even fewer Borganis, I have to wonder whether there exists anyone that could make such a comparison.Does anyone else have a SBA Soprano? There are only a very few around. Mine is gold plated, 40xxx, which is even rarer.
I am considering buying a modern soprano, with a warm sound too. I am looking into R&C saxellos, Yanagisawas and Borganis, What would you say that comes closer to the SBA sound?
I have owned Selmer Mk VI, SA-80, and Serie III sops, as well as SC-992 and Borgani Jubilee sops - my bent neck Borgani has the warmest sound of them all, but I have no idea where that sits relative to the SBA. Ergo-wise, the Yanagisawa wins. I prefer to play the Borgani.
