 Re: Apples vs oranges ? ; Buffet Crampon R13 vs Selmer 10G ?

This is somewhat personal for me. I went in to shop to purchase my first professional horn in 1977.


At the time I wanted to sound just like Benny Goodman and was hell bent on getting a Selmer (Benny Goodman's choice of horn). The shop proprietor was bullish on the Buffet R13 and had me try both out. His appraisal of the difference with the 10G was spot on. He pointed out that the 10G had undercut tone holes that made it easier to bend notes (gliss. and adjust pitch too). However the Buffet had a "sweeter" sound. He reinforced his claim by asking me to play as softly as possible on both. He was right on the money, the R13 played sweeter and softer than the 10G to quite a noticable degree.


I walked out with the 10G. I wanted to sound just like Benny Goodman
