 Re: English Horn bocal resitance

I'm returning to this with an update half a year later...

I'd been barely able to play on the Dallas 7 bocal and did put it aside as Peter suggested. A few weeks ago I had my English horn in to a repair tech for a general tune-up and after being professionally adjusted I now find that I have no problems playing on the Dallas bocal. Whatever had been out of sorts with the instrument's regulation was not having a serious or even noticeable effect with the Loree bocals but made things very difficult with the Dallas.

So now I'll spend some time adjusting myself the to Dallas. Its projection is superior and it plays up to 3rd octave F# without sagging. I have a Quiet City performance coming up and this bocal feels like discovering a superpower against the trumpet. I couldn't be happier.
