I have a Winston Pro I baritone sax, black lacquer with gold colored keys. I have found it to be a wonderful sax- easy to play with good clean, big sound throughout. I have it set up with a Brilhart Ebolin mouthpiece (a newer one, not the highly desirable vintage version) with a Rico H ligature. I absolutely love the sax- the only complaint I have is that it's heavier than any baritone I've ever picked up. However, for the sound mine gives along with the great ergonomics of its keywork, the trade-off of the heavier weight is something I'm willing to live with. I have heard good things and bad things about the Winstons (although very little bad about their baritones). It just may be a matter of lucking out and finding a good one, or it may be the set-up. I had mine set up by a highly skilled technician.
