Some days ago I played on a Mark VI for my first time. It' s surely a wonderfull horn but I sounded pretty much like on mine and I play a vintage Weltklang. I found this a bit strange. The thing I was amazed by though was the power of the Mark VI. When I say power I reffer to volume without loosing warmth! at all.
I played the Mark VI with my mouthpiece which is a Vandoren Jumbo Java T55.(+Rico 2.5 reeds)
My question is, how do I gain that power-warmth on my horn? Should I purchase for a better horn ( I play it for 5 years now) or should I change the mouthpiece?
(If you give me an advice please consider that I also tried a link 7* with Rico 3 reeds but my horn was showing to much resistence. It was not responding and the sound was to bright.)
Thanks in advance!
