    Thats a nice series 1 buescher and about the best of the aristocrat line (i have one from the same year ) They are the small bell version just before the big B and cut thru really well. I use either a dukoff D7 or berg 115/0 both metal mpc's which are both high baffle pieces and work great on bueschers so your D6 will be fine . Superb for jazz or R/B or any kind of music as good as (imho ) better then a mk 6 Dave
