I recently gave away a super sweet hedge SB from a period when they were bored open enough to better fill that "only call" bill, but the newer ones I've heard won't get loud enough to suit me, either. So if I were to get a current SB, I'd want acrylic to squeeze every tiny bit of volume out of it. But that hedge SB was the "duckiest" I've heard.
I've been wondering about this Rick. It does seem like the newer SBs don't have quite the volume like the old ones did. What did they change/when did they change them?
Folks have said on these boards that the stickered ones had the most open bores, but my was an early engraved version that seemed every bit as loud as my older version, scroll insert, Daisy cutter, just less harsh. Again, on these boards, I've read that the bore change was to help differentiate the SB and DC - but that's only what I've seen on the Internet. Which is to say I don't know the first thing about it for fact.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
