It was fun trying out the Tenor and experimenting with the keys, techniques, dynamics, etc. I also tried a range of mouthpieces to see how it spoke to me and ended up on the Yamaha 6C. I think I needed a slightly broader mouthpiece to really take the instrument through the levels but it wasn’t available. As a player, standing behind the instrument, I don’t always hear it in the way the audience do so having Mike around to give the objective opinion was really good! :-). After a 24 hour ponder I was still 50/50 about whether this was the one for me so I decided to let it pass. Never mind! The case is not quite closed, LOL!
