 Re: "Four Play" Reviews ICON Buffet Line

I don't understand the negative comments here. I find it nice that the four made a presentation of the ICON line. Of course, over the mic it is hard to really appreciate big differences.

Actually, I like the ICON line myself and can recommend it. I find the difference between ICON barrels and the Buffet stock barrels amazing. Besides my Aidoni's I enjoy them very much. (More free-blowing, somewhat cleaner sound.) Also the slim design and the light weight is definitely a big plus. The same is true for the ICON barrels, which for me seem to give a more focussed sound. (Together they are about 40 grams lighter than the stock material.) But personally I doubt that the color of the rings makes an essential difference.

I also like very much the ICON ligature. The design is the very same as the Buffet stock ligature (produced by HB, Herouard & Benard) but is not in silver but in rose gold with black nickle screws. Here I am convinced that the material really makes a difference, and also the haptic impression is better.

Since I am happy with my Vandoren mouthpieces I never tried the ICON mouthpieces, and probably will never do.
