I sort of accidentally put the mouthpiece I had cut down to match my Conn 40B in my '47 Committee. WOW! I liked the Committee, but for me it really wasn't special and I was thinking about selling it. A couple of friends have played it and loved it. One wanted to trade me his Schilke with 2 bells for it. With this cut down mouthpiece it really wails. I'm gonna take it to a big band rehearsal on Thursday night and to the NYE gig. (along with my trusty Red Rider Super Recording) Should be interesting.
I gotta say that I'm not seeing the whole dark sound thing. This trumpet can cut. It isn't nearly as dark as my Recording or my Eclipse MR. (wow am I spoiled)
