I trIed to pick favorites without including the ones I owned which were the Hauser III and the Gutmeier Cedar DT. both from a listening and playing standpoint. Amongst my three the Tacchi has that velvet sound like no other and the Elliott had everything anyone can ever ask for. Matt's favorite of mine was the Bottelli Hauser replica.
Just a totally fun time was so high could not sleep afterwards cause Charles and I talked to the wee hours of the morning. I did some vides and will try and have Charles include a few for me.
