"Siggi Jaeger's Instruments completely satisfies my ideals of sound. Their responsiveness is sensitive, with a balanced sound in all positions while adapting smoothly and full of character to different styles of music. The sound engineers I work with appreciate these qualities and characteristics as much as I do.
