OK, I want opinions!
When does a "commercial" sound, or a lead sound that is "compressed," become unruly "laser tone."
We can obviously hear the different tonal colors of different styles. Much of this is due to playing approach, but lets face it, Ave Maria doesn't sound right in most cases on a 6a4a! But there are styles and charts out there that sound better in high ranges and dynamic lead solos on the shallower, higher compression mouthpieces, and purpose built horns.
I also want to "qualify" out the many players who get a good commercial sound out of say a 3c-style or 5c-style MP, and an all purpose horn like a Bach 37 or a Xeno, because, yes, this equipment is really an all-purpose type of set up.
So, what, exactly, to you is this accursed "Laser Tone?" What defines it?
So, that said, opinions please?
