    Can't wait to see the pictures. Prior military band horn, I presume? I have a Reynolds trumpet with the same US engraving... rumored to have been owned by the Navy Band.

    I used an SM4 several years ago and didn't find that it brought me anything that I didn't already have with my 4AL, so I gravitated back to the 4AL.

    Great review! I played mouthpiece games aggressively while on trumpet and found big differences from one to another. With the euphonium I did a bit of that at the start but gravitated to my 4AL as...
