Selmer Ref 36 Flamingo (new)
Not necessarily in that order.
1. Doesn't go out of adjustment on a monthly basis.
2. Optimizes the ergonomics of the feel and keywork/action to it's fullest potential.
3. Is in tune throughout the range without wrangling, and doesn't sacrifice tone for intonation.
4. Is mouthpiece friendly with all possible setups.
5. Has the sound that so many golden oldies had 60 or 70 years ago.
6. Is built to last and keep the above attributes without constant tweaking.
