Forum Contributor 2011, SOTW's pedantic pet rodent
As will be seen from my signature, I am generally a firm believer in vintage saxophones. I also generally hate playing soprano. A pupil recently purchased a Yamaha straight soprano. I had a go. WOWZA!! What an action and superb intonation. Of course i've heard people rate the Yamaha/Yanagisawa sopranos highly but it really hit home when i tried this thing. I want one. I'd be interested in hearing if anyone else has experienecd a similar conversion in the direction of more modern equipment, especially on soprano.
