Topic: What's my gouge? concentric or ellipitical
I've only ever used ellipitical. Now I've got some Vandoren concentric. Before I start profiling I've been wondering if I shouldn't be using a slightly different profile. Afterall, the outer parts of the blade if kept at the same dimensions as used before with an ellipitical gouge, should be softer now. Right? So...
the concentric gouged basson cane versus ellipitical
What are their pros and cons.
