Subj: Tight seal (not all players like that)
Date: Mon, 22 Sep 1997 00:08:55 -0400

There are even some players who don't like a real tight seal. I'm friends
with Michele Zukovsky, and she doesn't like a tight seal. She feels that it
makes for more liquid connections if there is a little give in the seal.
I myself like a really tight seal.

Not only is this a constant, it is the constant Bill Brannen uses in his
new instrument service, based on the principal that a horn that seals
correctly (and I use the word "correctly" in a broad application here)
will play better than one that does not.

I told the listserv that I will not argue the point of materials, etc.
again. My posting is to help clear up any confusion that Susan may feel
regarding the discussion she has alluded to.
