Yeah, they may look cool, but I find them noisy, and have learned that not all techs can get a good seal with them. It's not so easy to level the tone holes if they are rolled.

Yes, my tech overhauled my '62 Mk IV alto with black roo pads & it came out very well. That was at my suggestion.
He does not level rolled tone holes (usually) but floats the pads as required.

On the 6M I was thinking Conn style pads, but he is now keen on the black roos. I'll certainly let you know how we go!
