    The opening phrase of “Bach in Brooklyn” is the second menuet from Bach’s first Cello suite. I commissioned it to play at the wedding of a section mate in a band I used to play with. He liked Bach.

    I use a Warburton 7ST with a custom rim that’s the identical profile and size (1.03”) to the Demondrae. I do love that rim, and the switch...
