The horn is awesome, far better than I am as a musician. I just restarted playing and have joined the Pickering Community Concert Band. I am one of two tenor players, the other fellow, an excellent musician who is about 30 years younger plays a mint Selmer Mark VII. Honestly on the basis of tone, consistency and intonation I think my horn is a little better; and is far better looking
I have tried several mouthpieces including a Meyer 6m and currently I am playing the stock mouthpiece for concert work.
