“The MK42 Sterling Silver pipe really helps my R4F (Rath) center the sound in. The core of the sound is absolutely brilliant, extremely dense. The sound is broad and rich in every register and stays that way at every dynamic even when you really light it up! I find that this pipe brings focus between partials in a way that I haven’t been able to get before. The articulations are fat and speak easily: marcatos and staccatos stay on the full side and don’t get “pecky” and legatos maintain consistency. This pipe can take a massive amount of air: I’ve found that I can really give it a push and the sound doesn’t break up. I’ve only had this for a few days and it’s taking some major adjusting from the previous leadpipe I was using, but so far I love it. I’m looking forward to testing it out in orchestra and brass quintet performances when we start back next month! Thank you for an excellent piece of craftsmanship, I look forward to trying more of your products in the future!”
