The neck is really important. Sometimes Mark Vi necks sound a bit like "Booooooh". There are aftermarket necks that gives you a more modern/bright tone with a freeblowing feeling (but without loosing depth or character). I recommend the necks from Tino Schucht - especially for Mark VIs.

Ken uses "beasonators" but I did not opt for that. I'll see how it goes with the Kali, experiment with reeds. Never found an aftermarket neck as good at the original - good yes, different yes, but not as good, not as preseving of the VI vibe. I really rather like the dark sound, just that I'm getting a different kind of work these days, more funk oriented. Or maybe I'll just give up these funk gigs, stick with a kinder gentler music, and trade the VI for a Borg. How's that sound Dr. G?
Leon, have you tried the TN1 from Tino Schucht? Bill Evans use it for the last 5 years (exclusively). He plays Funk, Fusion all that stuff with it - for a reason I think. And soundwise his horn is still a real Mark VI.
