 dark vs. dull
Author: Nakata 
Date:   1999-09-08 04:34

if a sound is too dark, do we call it "dull"?
dark is neutral, but dull is negative in
meaning. So my question is what is the line
that determine whether a sound is called dark or
dull? some American player claimed they have a nice
dark sound, their sound is totally unacceptable in my ear
, I just think a lot of teacher in N.America has
an aweful dull sound that is totally lack of color
and emphasize the "darkness" they favour. so what
is the bottom line of "darkness" that American player
is looking for? did they go too far? or I need
to change my sound concept in order to be accepted
by most N.American teachers?
