Jim and others,

Yeah, I've seen the TrumCor cup endorsed here before.  Right now, the 
two tenors in my section are using the metal JoRals, which I really 
don't like the sound of (especially the bass - it is _so_ metallic 
sounding). How do you think the TrumCor would blend with those?  (Half 
the time I just use my metal straight when they use the JoRal cups!)
