    An older (that means really older than me) member in a college night band I played with had a 621 in silver, much like yours.

    I sat to the next left of him many a rehearsal & concert, and honestly...

    So your grouchy-looking avatar is really you?:)

    Hard to play when you're frowning.

    Easier to play the high ones when smiling.

    Good performance there, Larry.

    The musical support from the band was good, too.

    Being somewhat of an outlier, I found the Bach Artisan 5G (not a bit like the regular 5G) tickles my sweet spot the best.

    Then again, MP's are a highly personal choice.

    I tried several SM- series MP's.

    One has to have real tough chops to make them work for you. Hours a day tough chops.

    The Great Pumpkin rises out of the band, to drop the gloppy leftover seeds on the conductor when they aren't looking.

    Before Covid shut down our band, I set next to an old boy with a 621s.

    Never seen such to date.

    Maybe him, maybe the horn.
