The Missing Link has arrived, and it’s killin’! I love all aspects of it. Picked it up at the post office this morning, and finally headed to the shed to play test it after a couple of studio sessions on tenor, alto and baritone during daytime. Wow! Right away I understood what all the fuss is about! I use Roberto’s Reeds 3 1/2 H, and I get a great core sound, rich and interesting. There’s plenty of fatness and warmth without any dullness. Plenty of projection, and the ideal resistance is my favorite part – it really allows me to shape the sound, and also helps stabilize intonation. Couldn’t be happier with my new setup!
