I don't have the equipment to do the sound clip myself but some of my friends might. Still use an old tape recorder at home to assess my playing! Rather spend $$ on the horns themselves.

Last evening i was playing the Adagio from the Mozart Concerto on the new alto. It really sounded lovely, actually better than me doing it on the R13. Wonder if it was this sound when Mozart started to write this for basset horn? Anyway it was totally effective on the alto, giving me goosebumps! (Not often does that happen!) My thought was that it sounded like a lower A clarinet, with more beef in the lower register and more delicacy in the upper register. The other movements I would give the nod to the R13 but not by much and it may be me getting accustomed to the key arrangement. The extra Ab/ Eb lever wasn't on my old LeBlanc so I keep bumping it! I love it on the bass but on the alto it is quite a but tighter to the other LH keys so I'll have to learn to be more careful. The Weber Concertino also sounded quite good on this horn. It accomplished all the runs ands arpeggios with ease.

Am so glad this is turning out so well. The dealer who sold it to me described it as "Buffet's finest hour". Not too far off.
