    Its probably maybe about 10% horn and mouthpiece. Arturo Sandoval will always sound like Arturo Sandoval, regardless of equipment. If you go through Maynard's career, you can sometimes tell which horn he is using because of a slightly difference coloration but not significantly. Good breath and embouchure, mostly breath, go a VERY long way.

    I grabbed a lesson with Arturo once and can attest that his sound/range is not due to equipment. He's had that on Bach, on the WT, on everything, and his mpc is not small. Also, he's not really a lead player, but a soloist and chooses equipment that helps him get his sound out and makes him comfortable.

    Yes, Ron Mesa should still be in France, and he's a very capable player, known as homebilly on the herald site for easy pm'ing.

    Yeah, that kind of confused me, too. When I think of "the biggest, fattest sounding lead trumper player", I'm more inclined to think of someone like Conrad Gozzo.

    Sorry. I didn't meant to confuse anyone.

    Joey Pero and Arturo Sandoval are simply examples of the tone we're looking for in the high range. The players we've used in the past have a tight, focussed high range with good tone. This time, we need something a little less polite.

    Gary,
    I have limited interest in gigs where I am supposed to sound like Arturo. I am not one of the fattest lead players in Europe (actually I have lost 35 pounds since Christmas). There are much better suited players for that. Thanks anyway.
