    I'll use about anything but the Committee. It's more of a function of mpc for me anyway.

    Olds Recording... Because it's classy, and has the brassy sound that is deserving of classical music.

    @Sounds7. I use my Shew 8310 with a Marcinkewicz Shew No.2 for lead and the New York Xeno with a Bach 1 1/2C when sitting in an Orchestra. Totally different sounds. I can't generate the sounds that I want in different playing scenarios with the same gear. I also can't catch marlin with a fly rod!!! :)

    I have one olds recording that sounds really good on the classical stuff, I have also used the Calicchio on classical with a deeper mouthpiece. The Courtois is my favorite though.

    Another Great Video, Thanks Greg.

    I mainly use the Bach Strad 37 L bore with the Asymmetric Opera mpc and change to the Asymmetric 342M Lead for high solos with the Big Band and Concert band. The horns make a difference, but not as much as the mpc IMO. I tend to rely on the Bach for a consistent sound in a serious setting, but happy to swap horns around weekly for regular practice, and will bring 2 horns to a gig JIC. For Big Band, I like to put in a Bent Bell for the attention :cool:
