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.

G'luck!
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!
