I had just decided to buy about 4-7 of those things and some (gulp) SP20s to
go with 'em.

But your'e saying they CUT volume, and sound like a GM? I already play GMs

I thought the whole concept of turbolids was to improve one's cup and
"face-to-harp" airseal- is that so?

I play frequently with accoustic instruments (bass, banjo, fiddle, mando,
guitar) - I NEED all the volume I can get - should I stick with my Golden
Melodys? (Don't EVEN try to tell me to get a HH1896 MB - I don't like the
covers, combs, or diminutive size)

Maybe I should look at 364s...
