Fully cognizant of the fact that we are talking only of general tendencies,
and that an individual's mileage may vary, I would be interested in Tom
Ridenour's opinion of the Selmer Series 10 (pre-10G, pre-10S). I've been
playing it long enough now to think that it simply responds "like a
clarinet." But since the model was not kept long before being modified (or
is the 10S the same?), was something found to be lacking that was corrected?

If you have to mic a saxophone, the rest of the band is too loud.
