A week or so ago I got a Vindor electronic saxophone. I posted in the unboxing thread. I’m slowly learning to play it, and usually pair it with an old iPad because the Vindor apps are pretty good. One of them lets me easily tinker with settings, the other is a basic synth/midi app to allow me to play additional sounds.
One minor deficiency of the instrument is that the plastic body has a shallow ridge too close to the headphone jack. This means that big fat TRS plugs aren’t the best fit. While they do work, they don’t seem to lock in. Have a plug with less size, and it’s just fine. I wrote to Vindor, and they will probably fix this in the future if they tweak the mold.
Anyway, I took the instrument with me this weekend, and pulled out my old Sennheiser HD-580 that I bought when they first came out. This not only fits well, it’s easy to drive, and is an excellent match for the Vindor. I’m bringing it out of semi-retirement, and it will get good use in this specific application. Synth sounds real nice, good bass, even from the internal electronics.
