The best bet is to go with what sounds good. I've seen people use things ranging from a Getzen 50 (old Canadian Brass Model) to a York CC cut by Osmun. What you should do is play a bunch of horns with the quintet, and find out what blends best. You can always hold back your sound, but that's better than trying to adapt a horn for a quintet.
