    While I concur that tone is one's own, I personally feel it wanders along affected by whatever music we are playing vis there is a bit more than a distinct centering of the notes and or holding them for full value set forth, the latter I'm often remiss to manipulate ... possibly with a bend towards my next note of just short thrift to grab a breath ... not a big deal to be noticed in a section but sometimes very distinctive in solo with either good or bad consequences.

    You will when you get a full upper denture ... as I did ... or get a new full upper denture. The color (colour) certainly is different IMO.

    The horn is a reflection of myself because I am loud and obnoxious. It's not that I desire to be, it's just that I am.

    So start your search for the sugar coating - then perhaps you will become the horn. Beauty can rub off on even the scruffiest (I think that I am a pretty good example of scruffy!)

    Oh really, you think you are the example of scruffy.

    This IS scruffy:
