As of late I have been on a quest to find a more comfortable playing classical tenor 'piece. I had been recently playing new soloist D that had been opened up to .085, and had the facing lengthened. I have grown tired of the low register response issues on this piece, and had settled on an Optimum TL4 for a while. Then a Houlik. I recently purchased a TL5 and have been playing if for about 5 days. At first blush, i really like it. it seems to be reed friendly and low register response is quite a bit more do-able. Tone quality is quite pleasing, a little more robust that the TL4 and definitely a bit brighter than the others. I think I could grow to like this one.
Any other opinions here?
