Merkliche Verbesserung des Vorgängers
BlueTrain, 17.01.2018
Ich habe lange Zeit den Vorgänger V16 Alto Sax A6-S gespielt, in Verbindung mit den Rico Royal Jazz Select 3S - Blättern. Ich war insgsamt recht zufrieden, aber nicht zu 100%, v.a. mit der Ansprache, die im Vergleich zu anderen dennoch für mich weit besser war. Insofern Klage auf hohem Niveau. Durch eine Rezension bin ich auf den Nachfolger A6-S+ aufmerksam geworden und bin begeistert. Anfangs dachte ich, es sind nur ein paar "MÜ" Unterschied, aber nach 10 Tagen regelmäßigen Vergleichs ist der Unterschied doch klar:
Intonation und Sound
Das 6-S+ intoniert genauer, der Sound ist noch prägnanter: damit meine ich: klarer, zentrierter, noch kerniger. Das 6-S wirkt im direkten Vergleich etwas dumpfer. Das 6-S+ ist innen etwas angerauht, das 6-S völlig glatt, vielleicht macht das auch einiges aus.
Ansprache:
Überall, auch in den Palmkeys-Tönen eine 100% sichere Ansprache. Ebenso in den drei, vier untersten Tönen fällt die Anprache leichter als beim 6-S, allgemein gibt es ja im pianissimo immer wieder Probleme. Das 6-S+ macht es mir hier bislang am leichtesten, wenn auch im Anstoßen nicht ganz perfekt, das liegt aber vermutlich an meinem Ansatz und/oder am Blatt. Was mir auch gut gefällt: es reagiert sehr sensibel und schnell auf meine Ansatzvariationen, das macht aber auch das 6-S recht gut.
Verarbeitung:
Tja, was soll ich sagen: ein optisch schön gestaltetes, mit dem Goldring auffälliges, und perfekt verabeitetes Mundstück. Alles in allem denke ich, dass es mich viele Jahre begleiten wird.
Fazit:
Die Ausgabe für den Nachfolger hat sich für mich gelohnt, es ist das erste Mundstück, von dem ich sage, wow, das ist wirklich meins, für mich gemacht.
PS: Ich hatte alternativ noch das 7-S+ zum Probieren mitbestellt, das ich wegen schwieriger Ansprache schnell weggelegt und zurückgeschickt habe, das 5-S+ war nur mit langer Lieferzeit lieferbar, das werde ich vielleicht auch noch einmal antesten. Die Längenunterschiede machen einen erheblichen Unterschied aus, man muss dann aber auch die Blattstärke entsprechend anpassen. Ebenso schied im direkten Vergleich das D'Addario Woodwinds Select Jazz Alto 6 - Mundstück raus, es wirkte gegen das V16 6-S+ dumpf und charakterlos. (Apropos: Der Service von Thomann ist hier wirklich gut, man kann diverse Mundstücke bestellen, muss natürlich in Vorkasse gehen und pfleglich mit den Mundstücken umgehen, aber dann kann man sie nach Herzenslust 4 Wochen probieren und ggf. zurückschicken. Sehr hilfreich!)

Super Mundstück
Saxlehrerin Lille, 30.06.2017
Dieses Mundstück ist der Hammer! Ich habe sowohl das 6er als auch das 5er ausprobiert. Wer einen typischen Altosound wünscht, sollte das 5er probieren. Wer aber, wie ich, hauptsächlich Tenor spielt und nur ab und zu zum Alto greift, der oder die sollte unbedingt das 6er oder 7er testen. Es ist unglaublich "freeblowing" bei absolut leichter Ansprache. Auf meinem silbernen Selmer Serie II bekomme ich einen wirklich klasse Sound heraus.
Ein Video habe ich auf Youtube gemacht: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdyE48lOpfI

Mundstück erfüllt alle Erwartungen, Ansprache sehr gut, Sound entspricht auch meiner Erwartung.
Als Blattschraube passt die Rovner Dark-1RL sehr gut.
