Ive got a pic of Gullin playing a bottom Bb mark VI and a hard rubber berg larsen. Great sound he had... what did pepper adams use? Also check out this guy: Frank Basile, he plays great. Great tone: http://www.frankbasilemusic.com/
In a Downbeat interview he described how his Berg got so pitted it was unusable. He said that he was (at the time) playing on a Dukoff D6, "but I'm not sure I'll stick with it."
If you listen to "Urban Dreams" you get a double-edged sword: it was one of Pepper's best albums in terms of his playing but he's playing the Dukoff and sounds quite thin. He was playing a Lawton by the time he recorded with Kenny Wheeler on "Conjuration" and beyond.
