Re: Are the tenny slant sig mold tenor pieces anything like a real otto link slant sig?
Unfortunately, I haven't played an original NY or Florida slant, but I am currently playing one of Doc Tenney's slants, and it is an outstanding piece. Since Link makes them to his specifications, using the original cavity mold used for Florida slants (there were several used at various times, and this one was chosen unanimously by a blind panel of players), and they are hand-finished, I have to imagine they are pretty close to the original, with the added benefit of much greater consistency. Sound is deep, dark, complex, plenty of mid-range, projection of solid sound rather than of perceived highs. I would be interested to hear a side-by-side comparison, certainly.
