Re: Tone Question
Do you play Tenor or Alto? Try a Conn 10M Tenor or a King Super 20 Tenor, Conn 6M alto or a Buescher 400 Alto with an Otto Link Super Tone Master (Metal) or a Rico Royal B3 mouthpiece with Rovner Ligature. I use a Conn 10M and 6M with those mouthpieces. Rico Royals are cheap mouthpieces too, but they sound really nice and they're well made. Yani 901's are good horns but they sound too "French" for my taste.
FRENCH: adjective....means stuffy, gay, with NO BALLS!
