Sorry, its a 6B. Loud , bright. Check out James Carter, he’s been playing one for years .August 12, 2017 at 12:37 pm #58015
I remember Lawton’s from way back but don’t ever think I tried one.August 12, 2017 at 1:12 pm #58016
Yeah Johnny, the guy Geoff Lawton came from a real small town here in UK. Back then no www. I know a few players on American bases traded them for other mpcs. Gradually I guess they made there way into the US !!
James Carter, as I said , yeah , sounds great .
The price ? It is what it is man; fair I’d say, though I got it a little cheaper ?
If you wan to borrow it you got my mail address.
Cheers boss….jakAugust 12, 2017 at 2:17 pm #58018
Yea Geoff Lawton lived in Macclesfield Cheshire and his workshop was at the back of his house
he made all the mouthpieces their I went to the house and he made a 9*BB for me, sold 6months ago
far to loud for me but what a great engineer he was. Jason his son still makes them from the house
in Macclesfield I think, went to him few years back so he could reface the rails on 7*b I had.August 13, 2017 at 1:30 am #58079
Peter, hi mate. Longtime , how’s things ?
That’s a great tale, so you met the guy ….great !!
Heard not great reports about Jason’s work.
In short , I was told he was finishing the blanks his Father had left …end of story.
In saying that , the mpc snobs know it all.
A link has to be a 47 babbit with two rings, and the number in large font on the left, no higher than …blah blah !! Then you find they can’t play a note…lol !! So , I lose track ; what you using now bud ? Thanks for the reminder, I’ll check E Bay now …later. Jak.August 13, 2017 at 3:11 am #58086
Sold both my Lawtons on “Pre-Loved site no problem, I am using
10m fan HR MERLOT and still have a link stm new York 7*. Try it
on Preloved if you have no luck on ebay, wont cost you anything
worth a try.August 13, 2017 at 3:22 am #58087
Thanks Peter, best to you and the family….jakAugust 13, 2017 at 3:24 am #58088
What’s your opinion on the 10M Fan ” Merlot ” ?August 13, 2017 at 4:08 am #58090
Find it ok Jak, went onto HR from metal due to not liking
the “feel” of the metal anymore on my teeth, strange as it
sounds but that was my reason. Love the merlot sound and
I play for my own pleasure it sounds warm and you can be
bright with it to, so yea happy with it just need a good
lig now, bought a Marc Jean to go with it but not to sure
I like it.August 13, 2017 at 10:23 am #58116
Thanks Peter, I’m in the market for a hr tenorsax mpc right now; that’s why I’m selling the Lawton.
Between my Link, and Berg , I can get pretty bright.
Few wine bar gigs coming up. Sure I could use the link but I want that Getz whisper; that’s what the audience are gonna want too.
Options are open as to what. If the Lawton doesn’t sell, I won’t be in the slightest bit bothered. They are coming harder to find. Especially the real early ones. I was gonna drop the price by $ 50… No way.
Big part of me hope it stays…well see…August 13, 2017 at 11:32 am #58122
Just had a look on pre loved Peter. Every mpc is a Lawton ..lol !!
Real nice Lupifaro about ten miles from me. Can’t afford it but might shoot over and give it a blast.
All Lawton’s….lol !! Well, I did say, I really didn’t mind keeping it. Might get a mpc head who gets carried away with the ” real early “…. It really is. No worries, well see…
