I played my soprano on and off all weekend….couldn’t get enough of it. The mouthpiece is great! I can’t think of anything I would want changed, including the beak. Intonation throughout the range is really good, based on my ear and the tuner I used. Low B flat eases out, pp or ff, without extra effort. Add to this, the fact that I am using the first Hemke 2 ½ reed that I took out of the box. (The 3 I tried was almost as good.) As for tone, you got it right on the button! I am really enjoying working through the sound I am now producing and making it grow even better. Thank you so much for making the above possible!
