The search for perfection ...
Lionel23, 04.02.2015
Super sleeve! The fingers walk around with pleasure ... Ebony touch, impeccable finish, Deering strings (much better quality than d'Addario).

On the other hand, the solid steel tone ring has a double disadvantage:

1) the weight of the instrument, rather painful in the long run.
2) the rather aggressive sound (in my opinion more suited to bluegrass than jazz). It's an advantage when you chord chords in jazz band formation (you can hear the banjo!) But it's a little garish about the melodic styles. We find high-end models with tone ring in bell bronze but it is not the same price ..

Aesthetic level = white skin and frankly smooth to change absolutely, although its sound qualities are very correct because it plumbs the appearance of the instrument otherwise quite sought after (marquetterie).
Supplied with a good Deering chest.

In short for 2000 balls an amateur in my kind can afford a professional quality instrument while thinking that the tenor Grail remains to be discovered.

At first I bought a Deering Boston tenor - cheaper - that I immediately returned: pot of the instrument completely metallic (a car rim!) Giving the feeling of having an anvil on the knees and a Its atrocious.
