“The scale and feel (back pressure) are more even and the leadpipe made my playing very efficient.  I could articulate very hard in all registers and the sound still held together.  When my musician friends listened from about 100 feet away in a hall, they noticed that the .525B-Y had more of a presence or “sizzle” in the sound than the Mercedes 836.   They also noted that I sounded like I was not working so hard on the fortes and fortissimos.  The coolest thing is that they noticed the same thing on my Bach 36 and my Yamaha 683G!”
