Objectively I would say they are better constructed horns. I am playing a Jody Jazz HR 9* with Rigotti nr 3 reed’s.
But after some time, sometimes only minutes, I get bored on them. Again I tried many known brand’s, different models ... it’s a new, modern horn but it really makes me think of vintage horns. Before I know it I am playing some fast bebopish rhythm change’s. I tried my other favorite tenor mouthpiece a Lebayle 8* Jazz, sounds great to.
