It took me about 50 hours to repad and tighten the mechanism of my Vito- Yamaha 21. When I got to play the b flat in a pianissimo and entracing way, as jbt sax puts it, I experienced a great sense of satisfaction.
I needed to simply touch the keys lightly for the horn to play the b flat. And of course the other notes came out just as easily.
There is a difference between a playing condition sound and pianissimo and entrancing.
My question is; how would you describe the feeling of the pianissimo and entrancing b flat?
I have the sensation of tautness, of a connextion between my breath and the instrument.
Apparently, on an accostic level, there are many simularities beteen the column of air and the string of a string instrument….
