Subject: Something else to talk about
If, like me, you're tired of talking about John Popper (FWIW, I weigh
in on the side of "so many notes, so little soul" and "he's an
arrogant little snot", but he really doesn't bother me all that much),
What say we invoke a more relevant discussions:
I'm rebuilding my chromo chops after a couple years of sax and
diatonic work (used to play some chromo for jazz pieces and studio
gigs several years ago). I've got several chromatics around: A 64
Chromonica, Super 64, 64x, a 270 in A, and the much maligned CX12
(which I still want to sell or trade...Anyone interested?). I've got
my own opinions about the differences and relative virtues of each,
but I'd like to hear from some of the chromo gods online what they
perceive as the differences between these harps, as well as the Toots
models (I've been interested in the hard bopper based on its PR for
years, but never got around to buying one).
2nd topic: I'm 100% sold on the MB. I've gone through periods of
playing S20s, GMs, Lee Oskars, and even played a couple of sets of
Huang prototypes when they came out, but I always return to the MB for
its solid tone.
However, on a whim I got a Suzuki (non valved) and a Meisterklasse to
fool around with and so far I'm pretty impressed with the metal combed
sound. Its a little too bright for my taste, but that may just be an
adjustment I need to make on my end.
What do veteran MB players think of the metal harps? How do they stand
up compared to wood?
