Indeed, this proves how subjective it is. I love Cannonball's sound, but I would describe it as anything BUT dark. I think of his tone as rather bright, but then he plays with a "bright" concept overall, so maybe that's what I'm hearing.Daniel Scott said:Plus your definition of dark. I think Cannonball had a dark sound and he played a Meyer 5 which are usually very bright pieces (the ones I've played at least).
Anyway, I'd go along with an Otto Link HR as a fairly dark mpc. I have a Tone Edge alto mpc that is fairly dark.
