Picked up a lightweight Maugein Export 80 box before christmas...no cassotto, no handmade reeds...in fact bog standard duralium...but for me still plays smooth and responsively.....real happy with it...2 clarinet reeds swung tuned....though if id had the chance to choose would have probably gone for the single 16 and 8 reed option
here's to another year of solitary amusement.....

Losthobos,
Great! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚πŸ‘
I foresee many pleasant hours to come: just the cure for pandemic blues πŸ‘

Do you ever look back at your recordings?
I think it's striking how you have 'settled in' to your music over time.
Nice work!

Thankyou lads.... I am enjoying this box. Mostly because of the low weight...
Jerry... If it sounds like improvement it's usually that I've got hooked on one song at the expense of all the others that have fallen into rapid decline...
Dingo.... The pandemic has given me time for to wrestle with the blues.. Which I'm appreciating for sure....
DunL.... Sure ive my old recordings on the main frame at home.... I really enjoy testing myself with them.... Happy for about 4 days then acutely embarrassed... But its good to retrospect sometimes and hear your past stutters, stumbles and burps.... Encouraging in an odd way... I am starting to feel more at home in my own little world though and that's sure good enough for me....
Thanks to all for listening kindly

Great, soulful rendition. Wish it was longer (y) ☺️.
Terry, I notice you are wearing headphones while you are playing.
Are you listening to a backing track, or is there some other reason?

Reason is I'm no longer recording in toy phone but bought mic to record to computer and really pleased with dynamic improvement....
So now to get visual i have to record myself playing along to myself then discard the audio from video track and try and sync the audio best as i can....
I'll do.... Im sure there may be a way to do all together but it's enough work playing the tunes never mind hitting multiple record buttons.... πŸ˜‰

Hmmmm, seems like you should be able to record your video using you good mic...... Or maybe no camera on your computer?

Yep.... No camera on laptop... And recording software is BandLab... Web based so can only do one thing at a time..... Easy enough and good exercise in timing trying to play same shizz twice... (or 47x πŸ˜‰)
