The Model 22 is what brought this whole thing up. I just ordered a Model 22 to check out on alto and was just wondering if there was an Ebolin-like piece for tenor. Thanks for the help. I might try an SR as well. I have discovered that I am just not a link guy and there aren't that many other classical designs available on tenor. It seems like everything is some kind of take on a link.
I never thought SR when I thought Brilhart but then I have never played them back to back. On that note I do like the SR, its a unique piece. I liked it a lot on my Martin, didnt like it on the Ref 54 so I sold it. I dont how how it behaves on a VI.
The model 22 is internally very close the to vintage ebolin/tonalin, but Santy studentified this 22 piece with very thick and safe rails and it does not play like i Brilhart at all. The best low priced Brilhart copy is the white Buescher from the 50s, which was also made by Runyon. The reason behind the good copy could be that they also made the Brilharts for a periode. But the white Buescher have very bad facings so you have to add a new facing to the price.
