Thanks for the compliments guys.
Saxguy007, I hope you still have your Barone? Am glad the initial review helped influence you back then to getting one. They're great horns. Oh, and did I say 2 years ago???? I was wrong, it was 3 YEARS!! Christ I feel old now In which case, the bodywork and lacquer have stood up even better considering its continual use and travel.
Set up? I a Vandoren V16 ebonite T8 (I got it from Ed Zentera back around the time I got the horn, he opened the tip to make it also as part of what I was looking for soundwise, so it's probably an 8*). I also use an out of the box T8 for funk and modern work. They're wonderful mouthpieces, and I haven't looked at anything different since getting them years ago. Looking forward to the baritone versions too, due to be released soonish. Reeds wise, Rico Royal Jazz Select filed, 2H or 3S depending on the mouthpiece.
Nice clips Evan!
