    Default Drake Stubbie - new resin model, anyone tried it?

    Aaron Drake ceased making metal pieces some time ago. He used to make a metal version called the Drake Stubbie. He now makes a resin version of the stubbie. Has anyone tried the new resin version? Has anyone compared the metal and resin versions head to head? How do they differ?

    I didn't care for it. It was too stuffy for me.

    The metal version was very popular. When they are put up for sale used, they usually fetch a pretty hefty price. If Aaron was able to make a resin piece that plays similarly, I would think there would be demand for it and several people would have play tested it by now.

    I can't stand the amount of emphasis most people place on the "tradition" of jazz. The history of jazz was written by cats who relentlessly pushed the boundaries. Do you know what I call people who only try to play what Bird or Trane already did? Classical musicians.

    Just tried out the Drake resin stubbie, first impression is stuffy indeed,
    I has a stubbie sound but lacks character and clarity of tone in the mid range
    From what I remember the metal stubbies where better

    I have a few more days to try out the mpc, I will let you know my impressions of the piece

    I played the Drake stubbie and it was stuffy initially because the reed was too hard. I went down a number on the reed and it sounded good to me.

    Generally I really like Drake pieces. I have not had stuffiness issues with any of his pieces and I own several. Some I like better than others, but all play fairly easily and tend towards less resistance. I would love to try one of the Drake Stubbie pieces one day to see if I like it.
