Re: Gordon Walker

Quiet, you. You’ve been afforded the luxury of a public forum for far too long, not only for your repeatedly inane responses here on so many minor matters, but now most unacceptably on this highly...

Re: Strike-ins, what a pain!

This brings up a related question I have - sorry to piggyback on the OP.

What would happen to the performance and tone of, say, a Kinnaird bass drone reed, if one built a custom nose cone that was...

Agreed. If it’s repeatable, that will be interesting!

Re: Is travel to the UK in October a good idea?

OK - so, I should clarify.

First, I generally understand life realities and philosophy.

In this thread, I'm looking for specifics around the Brexit situation that could potentially and...

Is travel to the UK in October a good idea?

Hi all - my wife and I are thinking about spending perhaps 10 days or so in the UK, starting around October 1. Let's see if I can ask this question decently...

Re: Mark Lee Rocket Drone Reeds

Interesting - I'm honestly curious about this, since I was using standard Evos for a while before switching to EZs for my tenors (I still use their Evo bass). Is there something subpar you've...

Re: Your 2019 setup?

FWIW, I generally get about 8" of h2o tuning accuracy range with my Kron Heritage drones when using EZ's in the tenors and a Kinnaird Evo bass. In that range, the drones stay spot-on to the target...

Re: Your 2019 setup?

Re: Clamptite instead of hose clamps?

Bike tire inner tube strip under the hose clamp. Tighten. One or two inner tune strips over the hose clamp. Done. Move on to practice.
