Re: What legit sax should I get? Yamaha Custom EX?
JM Londeix actually prefered MK VIIs when the SA80 and later the Serie II were introduced he always would comment ,,,about the shame of Selmer leaving the Mk VII mindset ,,
remember that the VII was a Hemke inspired design ,for legit work ,,
unfortunately the Jazzers did not take to it and Selmer abandoned the VII concept ,,,many would have liked to have seen a second or third edition of the VII as that design would have evolved ,,,I believe the result would have been better than the Serie III,,,more open ,,less stuffy and certainly less colored ,
,,the beauty of the VII ( and great ones do exist ) is that each player sounds like themselves ,,,,DIFFERENT ,,,,the SERIE line makes everyone sound the same they are just too colored !!! YAMAHAS ALSO
