Yeah, it’s really beautifully crafted. It has a brighter and more clarinetish tone than my Dreux. The downside is that the overtones make chords really harsh. The Dreux is much better for chords. But this thing is tight and loud so I think it may be a better single line instrument for performing.
It’s nice to have 2 distinct sounds.
I just got back from the Havana Jazz Festival in Cuba and talked to a performer who was using a Shure headset mic for his recorder-ish instrument, which sounded great, even with a full band. Just ordered one and will repout on how it works.
Accordina are really hard to mic.
