While trying out a Conn 6M (year 1936) the seller let me play with his Brilhart Tonalin Great Neck 3 which he found practically NIB at an auction. The sound was wonderful coming out of the horn.

Here is my ask:

Have any of you that have tried multiple mouthpieces found anything that sounds the way the Brilhart mentioned above does or in your opinion sounds better?

Also, how would you describe the differences b/w early tonalin great necks vs. older tonalin's w/o the great neck stamping?

Lastly, is the shape of the sound any different b/w the tonalin and ebolin?

Thanks for the opinions / advice.

I own a Brilhart Great Neck that was refaced and banded by Brian Powell, it is indeed killer on old Conns, but my favorite mouthpiece for my old 6m is an RPC roll-over. It has flat side walls like the Brilharts, but with a round chamber.
