Just voted, seems you are in the lead by quite a lot!
7 Monettes, 8 Harrelsons, 6 Stomvis, 7 Schilkes, 5 Taylors, 5 Bachs, 4 Yamahas, 3 Scherzers and 5 others.
A vote from Holland, for my favourite Doc. Number 121, you're way up the lead. I don't know any of the bands, but I'm confident you will sound the best. I'ld love to hear some.

I don't know if I can handle that loose slotting of the Comittee...It sounds defective. You should swap in a bach bell :)
It is interesting that you do note this characteristic. On another post requesting recommedation for Jazz Method books, I mentioned "The art of Jazz Trumpet" by John McNeil, were he has a section on the Martin Committee in his methods book that addresses your perspective: "The downside of the Martin Committee is that one pays for flexibiity of tone and execution with questionable intonation. Since notes on a vintage Committee are not slotted to the degre one finds on a Bach or Benge, the player has to compensate extensively in order to play the horn in tune. Because the sound of the Committee is fairly unique, it can be difficult to blend within a trumpet section. The trumpet section in one of Woody Herman's bands once solved this problem by having the entire section play Committees."
Done! .....you guys are running away with the voting!! Good luck
