I am returning to soprano after many years away and am carefully researching which sop to buy. Many people here claim that vintage sop's have a better sound and I have to ask what exactly is a vintage sound versus a modern one? What modern artists have that "vintage sound" and who is noted for a more modern one? Wayne Shorter is my favorite player but I listen to everybody I can, though I admit I don't care for Bechet's vibrato so much. The sop's I'm looking at are the Rampone & Cazzani R1 Jazz and the Selmer SA II on the high end, and the Antigua Winds Yani copy on the low end.
