As many of you know Geoffrey Ellis and I went through many different prototypes to get the instrument we were looking for. When playing over the phone didn't cut it I made a video clip with my digital still camera. I placed it on a bookshelf to get the mouthpiece in view. Then I emailed it to Geoffrey.
The "ticking" on the soundtrack is the camera's auto focus. Other than that, this is a completely dry take. No reverb or delay.
