Re: steve goodson unison tenor
Now that I've had the horn for a while longer, I've adjusted to it and darkened it up by relaxing my emboucher a little more. If you want the darkest sound, I'd recommend getting one of the satin finishes on the horn, w/ the kangaroo pads. I have plastic resonators on mine. If you want a vintage dark sound, you might look into the old Conn 10ms -- great horns for a reasonable price; however, your best bet w/ those would be eBay, and older horns, no matter Mark IV's, SBA's, Conn, etc., should probably be tried out first due to inconsistencies. At least w/ the Goodson model you know you're getting a new horn.
