I love the sound of my bare brass vintage tenor! It is at my tech's place right now for some set up and personalization work, and I can't wait to get it back. I have only played one Mark VI (about 3 years ago?), and I have never played a Barone classic, but from what people say, they are more comparable to the Mark VI. The Vintage is more along the lines of the old Conns.
Since I see that Phil is participating in this thread . . . are there any construction differences between the Classic and Vintage? The specs seem like the Vintage is a higher-end horn: detachable bell/bow, fancier pads, blued steel springs, etc. but I don't know if these are actual differences or just what's been put on the web page, or if real, whether they are a "difference that makes a difference".
