I played a metal tenor 8 for many years, i thought it was great but I now play a Wanne Durga and can't for the life of me remeber what I like about the Lakey since the Durga does everything so much better.
I'll clarify my statement by saying it was so easy to play that it was hard for me to control.The Lakey is way too easy to play? Should a mouthpiece be difficult to play?
Some people like a little more resistance in their mouthpieces...The Lakey is way too easy to play? Should a mouthpiece be difficult to play?
You play tested ONE.I play tested one of the HR/plastic pieces and hated it. Way too bright, way too easy to play.
I didn't care for those models on alto either. In 1982, Claude sent me a box o' mouthpieces to choose from - I selected a 7* sop, 7*3 alto, and 6*3 tenor. Those worked well for me in the context of an electric fusion combo.A friend loaned his 5* 3 for alto to me last week and I got a 4*3 to try on Saturday. The more I played it, the less I liked it. I'm sending it back. I've heard some players who sound good on them. I'm guess that I'm just not one of them.
Yes, it was enough. It was enough to realize that what they are about is not what I'm looking for. Like with Links, even on a bad one I learn enough to know that if I can find a good one that it's got what I want in a piece.You play tested ONE.
