Keegan802, it's not the horn you play, it's how you play the horn. A good player could whip your peers on your "intermediate" horn. Along that line, in music you don't compete with your instrument. You compete with your playing. Flexibility is all up to the player.Keegan802 said:all of my peers are on prolevel horns now. Two of them play references, two of them play Z's, and one owns a Keilwerth.
Yes, I see where all this is coming from, but, let's flush out the terminology differences here.SaxyAcoustician said:No such thing as a JAZZ horn or CLASSICAL horn! :Rant:
NOOOOO!!!!! (don't ask this question, but if you want to know, go to the sax body/finish forum)Keegan802 said:This is really helping guys, alot. You've named like 90 saxes for me and I think, in the end, I'll just make a list and go and try them all out. You guys have been extremely helpful. If you've got anything else let me know, but I have another question; Silver lacquer versus black versus gold versus unlacquered? I have heard that silver is brighter sounding and harder to control and that it doesn't intonate well. I've also heard that unlaquered is similar but easier to control. Black supposedly has a lower darker sound, and gold is just...standard? I'm just a little confused, because if I was just going on looks I'd so get a silver sax. But I know there's more to it than that.
