Our band have agreed to buy a new sop, as the one I'm playing has more holes than a sieve! They want me to try out a few, to see which I feel happiest with. I can try the Xeno, but this is the one that is knackered and only 5 years old, the Schilkie is the only obvious choice. Personally, I love the Cortois, but they have stopped making these, or I'd have this in a instant! Since I can only try a couple, is there anything that you guys can suggest??? P.S. Why do Schilkie charge £300 for a case, surely they are charging enough for the instrument that they don't need to charge that much for something to put it in!!!
