Most vintage large chamber soprano pieces
don’t play very well, but this one just sings. Why?
Because Lelandais was one of the most conscientious
and committed makers ever and this design has a chamber
that avoids being “too large”,
which just ruins so many vintage large chamber pieces.
With an original tip of .042, this piece plays big and rich with moderate to firm reeds.
Intonation is solid and response is quick and sure.
Don’t get into the “that’s too small a tip for me” rut.
On soprano, tip opening is close to meaningless for most players.
You’ll be amazed at how smooth and easy this piece plays
and it will take all the air you want to give it, too.
