For your own personal playing, are you using the Guardala Michael Brecker model or Fatboy for your playing? It seems like the Fatboy has a fuller projection to it v.s. the Michael Brecker model that has more of an ‘all-around’ type of sound? That’s what my ears hear anyway. I plan on getting 1 of the metal Guardalas and the 1 of the Carbon Fiber Model–use the Carbon Fiber for indoor/intimate settings and the metal Guardala for larger settings. I have a question about the Fiberreed, but will put that in the Reed section of the forum. Will start taking care of this when the new school year picks back up–my wife helps me make things like this happen 🙂 Thanks!
For live on stage I prefer the MBI as it is brighter (but not as full)
some studio recordings I prefer the Fatboy cause it is bigger
for some things the fiber carbon fatboy works nice cause it’s not quite as loud
I have actually thought about the MBI–it’s a few hundred dollars more, but it could be worth it. That’s what I was talking about above with the MBI being more of an all-around type of MP. The Carbon Fiber model I would use for more indoor/intimate settings. To raise $ for these MPs my wife and I are listing loads of stuff on ebay over this weekend that we don’t use around the house any more and have already sold some of it. Thanks for your help:) Will be getting your new song releases ASAP–summer budget for my family and I is always somewhat tight. When school starts up again then things go back to normal.
