Can anyone tell me how these Curry rims really differ from the more prevalent ones? The hype (on MEs website) indicates they remain comfortable while fatigue sets in or words to that effect.

Will a similar size rimmed 600 feel larger, or smaller (compared to its normal Curry counterpart. (E.g, a Curry 10.5 has a 15.9mm rim, & a Curry 30 (600 series) has a 16mm rim. Otherwise negligible using the same rim, but one might feel smaller or larger.

Since no one has replied yet I will try to answer. I have only tried two different sizes of the 600 series rim (60 and 70 sizes) and they are rounder than their standard series equivalents. I know I'm not really answering your question, but I doubt that the .1" difference between the 10.5 and the 30 will really matter. What will matter is if you will prefer the Bach-like standard rims or the rounder 600 series rims. I much prefer the 600 rims. I hope this helps.

hey bassguy,

I have found that the 600 series feels ever so slightly larger than the standard line, but just ever so slightly so, but i attribute this to the slightly steeper undercut of the 600 series.
That little bit of extra room allows for a little lip swelling without bottoming out or stopping the vibration. All that being said i use very little lip intrusion and tend not to bottom out on just about anything, the rounder rim i find much more comfortable on the 600 series as well. Your situation may vary depending on how much lip you get inside the cup. since i am using the 00 size i have very little lip inside the cup to bottom out.

hope this helps,

regards,

tom

How does the tone color throughout the range in the 600 series flugel pieces differ from the standard series if at all?

Regards, Guido

Hey guido,

I don't find much difference in tone color with the flugel pieces from the 600 series to the standard. I think the extended V-shape does that for them. Just a slight different feeling with where the high point of those pieces are, I do however "feel" and "hear" a difference with the trumpet pieces. for me anyway, the 600 series "feels" tighter and brighter which is what i tend to need with the work that i do, fighting amps and tom tom's !! when i play tested the standard series it was a little too Bach-Like for me, not sure if that makes sense.

regards,

tom

Thank you so much Tom for the information... If the 600 flugel series does not modify the admittedly marvellous tone of the standard Curry series, I will probably take a pass on it.

I was thinking of finding a flugel piece that is a little more brilliant than Current Fl-M. Fl-M is on my 1525 the most brilliant piece of my lot... More brilliant than Stork 2FLS and GR 66Fl.

Any ideas?

Guido

sorry guido, i can't be much more help on this. funny though, since your looking for a more brilliant sound on flugel, i would suggest that perhaps a shallower less V-shaped cup might be what your looking for. there is a video of Doc, playing Here's that rainy day on flugel that sounds very trumpet like to me, more brilliant than a flugel. I can only guess that his cup is less V-shaped.

check it out.

tom
