Each instrument is truly unique. For stringed instruments, even within a same essence , each piece of wood is different (elasticity, density, resonance, resistance, etc.). It is therefore quite easy to understand that each model of a stringed instrument, whether acoustic or electric, will vibrate and resonate differently.
Like stringed instruments, two pieces of wind instruments made of wood (clarinets, oboes, bassoons, recorders, etc.) can never be perfectly identical, even if their manufacturing is partly industrialized (e.g. creating a bore with a defined geometry). The wood that is the backbone of a wind instrument will never react the same to the boring and shaping of the instrument.
For wind instruments made of metal (brass, saxophones and flutes) the influence of the craftsmanship is necessarily unique for each instrument, even if the production is controlled to achieve geometries as close as possible to each other. The alloys used, the cuts, the stretching of the metal—even the traditional handcrafting or hand-hammering of a manufactured bell—will necessarily shift, even so slightly, from one model to another.
This is the reason why, when you purchase an instrument, it is essential that you try it: first to select it among others, and second to convince yourself that the one you have chosen has the tonal properties and the playing comfort you are looking for.
At Servette-Music, we are convinced that this is the right approach. Therefore we have a large stock of instruments for all levels of players, and we offer you the opportunity to try your future woods, brass, guitars, amplifiers and effects, on site or at home. Nothing can replace the time you take to test your instrument, the time you spend listening to it and reflecting on it.
Because each instrument is unique.
