People used to collect and trade baseball cards.
Your tone is like a signed babe ruth card. You wouldn't trade it away for anything.
Someone comes along: "Hey Buddy, I'll trade some flashy fast notes for that tone card. Waddya say?"
Someone else comes along: "Yo man, come here. I'll give you three Fortes for that tone card."
- too loud
- too fast
- too punchy
- too soft
