The following audio clip is Four Tones, Same Player and Equipment-
I took John Peacock up on his challenge awhile back, to demonstrate several different voicings and how they affect tone.
This clip begins with my saying and playing #2, #3, #4, and then #1, because #1 is my own natural voicing and since it is more familiar and comfortable, it would have an unfair advantage.
The point is not that I sound better or worse on each sample, but how different the sound is from the others.
See if you can figure out the school of sound I am attempting in each one. I intended three specific schools of voicing and embouchure with #2, #3 and #4.
