Anyone ever try the Woodwind & Brasswind house brand soprano? Any experiences to share with that? Quality, sound, intonation, value?
I just tried out their curved soprano as well. The whole horn was WAY flat. Even w/ the mpc pushed all the way in (The neck was pressed against the mpc's chamber) some notes were way flat. Just to be sure it wasn't me, I had another professional player w/ 20 years experience on soprano give it a blow. He had the same result. I mailed it back last weekDave Dolson said:I bought a curved sop from them a while back. Sold it after I couldn't play it with other instruments. One of the worst scales I'd ever experienced. DAVE
A lyon and healy recently sold on here for $300 something. You could get a used antigua for less than that probably. Just have to be kinda patient. Plus, if you are willing to look at relaqs, you could get something like a buescher tru-tone. I remember back a while ago someone was selling a Conn New Wonder relaq and he was willing to sell it for around $500.ZephyrSax said:Hmm, I'm really looking for a vintage soprano that's less than $500, but that much money won't get me a Buescher, or a Conn, or maybe even a stencil of them. I'm flipping coins on the WWBW one...I found one a couple cities away for something like $350...it's a straight model with silver plate, excellent condition. But I wouldn't be able to test it, I don't think...
Whew, good thing I wasn't actually looking at that one ...otherwise you would have taken it right out from under my feet! What did it go for in the end?Carbs said:I just won the Straight double neck Soprano on Ebay. And will let you know, when I get it. I will also get my Private Lesson Teacher to play it. I may see if I can try his link HR on it. Don't know. I will let you know when I get it.
