    Try the Strathon Ajustotone on bari. I play a 6* and with the adjustable baffle, it can go from edgy to downright wicked with a flick of your finger (and you don't have to take the mouthpiece off the horn to adjust it).

      Don't try the Srathon. I have one and while it does adjust easily rnough like sax_maniac said, it always feels to be leaking air. Try a Runyon or a Jody Jazz with the spoiler insert.

        That's an interesting observation. Was it leaking through the baffle slider or was the reed seal poor?

          Reed Seal was great, it was coming though the baffle slider. I own the piece, and have used it multiple times, and everytime I play it, I can really 'feel' the loss of power through there. Anyway, I have the BBQ piece on order from Charlie A, (maker of Gig Dust and the Crud Patch) and it comes with the runyon spoiler, which really makes pieces rip it up.
