Barry you are not that lonely at all. I'm only able to play on one of the
following three horns:
Right now its mainly the Bach because I like the lower weight of the horn,
and the lightweight slide. I kinda prefer the tone of the other two, with
the King being the right mix of sounds and the Conn being kinda "crisp",
which I like for jazz.
I may have the Conn slide lightened. . .Sandhagen keeps eyeing the thing
every time I bring it around. . .and he starts talking about how easy it is
to lighten a slide.
Mouthpiece now is Chocolatero from G&W.
Wayne: Woudja believe? I started on a Conn 4H (vintage probably mid
fifties). I'm sorry I got rid of that. Bell was tiny but not the tone. It
was rich and dark. Yes! Dark even in a sub-.500 bore horn. Really nice
resonant build and proper design was probably responsible.
