dpappas Posted September 7, 2020 Report Share Posted September 7, 2020 I am not referring to expensive just because of provenance. I’ve played some old Cremonese and Brescian instruments that underwhelmed. When playing a great, projecting instrument, how would you describe the sound under the ear? I imagine a penetrating instrument with a carrying tone would be a bit intense under the ear. I find when trying instruments the ones that please me under the ear don’t sound as good when others play them for me during the evaluation. Is my experience atypical? I find a responsive instrument is intense and the feedback (aural) really tells me a lot about intonation, etc. -dimitri Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
