 Re: What was wrong with the Selmer 10G?

John: I find the main reason for the superior smoothness of Buffets compared with Selmers is ease in making register breaks. On Selmers, you have to struggle with these breaks more. However, Selmers have a certain grit, woodiness and rusticity that you don't get with Buffets. You loose on the swings what you gain on the roundabouts. To come back to the 10G, Leblanc also tried to cash in on the US success of the R13 by bringing out their L200. It never caught on either. You have prompted me to try out a Selmer 9* again; the last time I did this was....in 1966. I tested Jimmy Hamilton's new 9* and was bequeathed his old Leblanc LL.
