 Re: Ricardo no longer with Backun?

I think Ricardo has been looking for something not so dark. I kind of saw this coming when he switched to a crystal mouthpiece not long ago. I think the Philly Orchestra will benefit greatly.

Now I wonder if David Shifrin and many others may make a move too.

As I've always said the Zinner mouthpieces are on the dead side and the sound doesn't carry in a lot of halls, but up close the mouthpiece sounds very nice. Our ears play tricks on us between knowing the difference between dark and warm. I feel the same with his horns. We have to get away from that 5 foot mark maybe 10 feet and then see how the horns behave. As Marcellus often asked me - does the reed sound buzzy? He knew that a buzzy reed would warm up and get that pinging and ringing sound and fill the hall. Up close this is hard to figure out sometimes.

These new horns he is playing on are very good. Warm sounding and we might see him make a mouthpiece change again as the crystal might be too bright. He's playing on a Pomarico so maybe he will go to a rubber one from the same company. These are where Mitchell Lurie got his from and as we know he had a very nice sound.

Yes Pomarico stamped Backun on the crystal mouthpieces as he did with Mitchell Lurie. These are not Backun mouthpieces.
