I've tried the New York 7M (rubber)with an added baffle. It plays very easily and would easily qualify for a top quality mp. It sounds and feels like a NY meyers though, albeit brighter. I think that without the baffle, it would work for traditional types of jazz, and even with the baffle, would not really work for fusion/smooth as there's not a lot of edge, at least in the one I tried. Good luck.

does phil add a baffle to one for extra $$ or does he sell them with the baffle all ready installed. or did you have the baffle put in?

I had him put one in for extra $$. Usually he charges $75 for any kind of modification, although you could get the mps for $70.

I have a Barone NY without any further baffle or modification and heck it has plenty of power IMO...I also have a Lamberson 6DD that I got from Tim Price a while back and to quote Tim "It will draw blood"!
