Can you post a bit of the other one where it isn't just random noise, or progressive whatever, where they actually sound alike? I'm not listening to the whole of that shit just to prove you right, so you'll have to help me here. From what little I could bare at the beginning, it sounded awful. If you want to sound like that, hook up one of your sax mouthpieces to your cornet. Your tone has improved a lot using the Shilke. What are you now not satisfied about? Just work with it until you reach a stage where you feel it either suits the sound you want, or you've exhausted it enough to realise that you might need something else to get that exact sound you want. Like I wrote before, it seems you are really most of the way there. By the way, Mark Charig - nice sound. But it just sounds like a trumpet. Those long cornets with no SCs are basically short trumpets anyway. We've had this debate before on the forum.
