Some of you that own the Series I also own a Mark VI tenor. I am wondering how the Series I measures up in terms of power. I recently came into possession of a Series I tenor and I find its tone very pleasing, but at this point in time (I have only had the horn a couple of weeks) find it suspect in terms of power, especially when compared to my Mark VI. Because of this, I have yet ot play it outside of the practice room. During an informal jam session our bassist was of the opinion that the VI sounded "bigger". On the other hand, frankly, I am not a Mark VI fanatic, and in fact in some ways like the Buecher better in that regard. If I could get used to ergos of this Series I, and become confident that it could deliver sufficient power (I play unmiked, necessarily because most of my work is in restauants), I'd be tempted to sell the VI, to which I am not particularly attached, and look for a large bore horn for contrast. (156? BB?) I'm wondering how the Series I compares to the Mark VI, since some of you have both. My VI is an original, and I wonder if I like it equally to the amount of money it could bring in, and what else it could purchase or be traded for. My reluctance is that the VI is so reliable, dependable - a real workhouse, if lacking in individuality and personality.
