    Hello guys, hello Manny!!

    My questions is this: mpc with more bite of the rim (like Monette 1-2) provides less or more endurance that mpc with less bite (like Monette 1-4)???

    And another question is if 1-2's rim is less or more sharp than 1-4's one.

    Thank you all. Beppe

    Yes I know, I've write "that" but it's uncorrect! I would say "than"...

    Beppe,

    My endurance always seems better with a little sharper rim but these days I am playing the 1-4S which has a little softer rim than the 1-2. Everyone is different but I think that is generally true.

    And, mio amico, don't apologize for your English! Suo Inglese e meglio che mio Italiano! I had to learn what little Italian I know from playing opera. I will be in Milano this August but only one day! Do you live near there?

    Ciao,

    ML
