Hey Ammin–that’s not JB playing. It’s a video he shared of a guy named Ian Boyter…but I sure would like to hear JB do an upload! I heard his demo the other day of flutter tongue and sure sounds like he’s nailed it; not easy to do.
He’s right. Vintage horns do have a bit of a different sound.. His in particular is pretty crappy in my opinion. He’s not really someone I’d look up to or take information from because he just doesn’t seen very good to me. Honestly you’re gonna sound like YOU on any horn, on any mouthpiece, on any reed. Differences might be slight between them all, but It’s just figuring out the right combination of equipment to make it the easiest for you to sound like you.
Welllll I’m not sure. Maybe he’s alright and it’s just the recording quality that’s bad. But from that video his tone didn’t sound too good. Sometimes the recording equipment has the biggest impact on our sound ;D haha
