The combination of yellow brass slide crooks, first branch, and bell with a nickel silver mouthpipe and branches blends the warmth of yellow brass with the clarity of nickel silver. New CNC-machined mouthpiece receivers ensure the critical mouthpiece insertion depth is the same from instrument to instrument.
Like its predecessors over 80 years ago, the revised 6D is popular with professional musicians who praise its quick response and compact sound with a wide palette of tone colors. Teachers have also praised the more compact wrap and standard tuning slide arrangement as well as the easy control of the small-throat bell.
