It took me a little longer than anticipated to adjust to the piece, but then the transmission dropped into gear and it’s been oh so smooth to drive ever since. The more I play it, the more I love it–which will make the much needed time in the woodshed that much more enjoyable. I just started noodling around with it yesterday, and “poof”, three hours disappeared from my day. I’m going to have a great time getting to know this mouthpiece. It is indeed a singer, round and lyrical as promised. Thanks for your work.
