Great Playing and Tone!
I really anticipated there would be more difference between the two. I was surprised at the similarities.
Thank you for posting this.

You get a very nice sound on both horns. I think you may notice more of a contrast if you had used a pre-war, rolled tone-hole 10M.

I also have a '74 Mk VI and a '36 10M but previously also had a '54 10M, which was lighter in tone than the '36 and more like the Selmer.
This was also influenced, I feel by the nylon resonators in the '54 (like the Mk VI) Vs the flat metal resos in the '36.

I had to sell the '54 to maintain Marital Harmony but it was a very good horn in its own right despite a factory re-lacquer & non-authentic resonators.
So enjoy them both!
