    While it's not a "just a light brownish tone" I think the AGFA MCC line of papers in brown toner is a perfect brown print.

    It may be too brown for what you're looking for though... But something to investigate none the less.

    In addition to using warm tone papers and developers add 10 to 15ml of a 10% solution of bromide to your working developer to help warm up the print but be careful not to add too much as it will result in a flat print with a green cast. Another dodge is to over expose the paper and under develop as a starting point over expsose by about 40% and underdevelop by say 50% to warm up the print. This will aslo help control the print contrast when printing from a high contrast negative.The suggested times and dilutins are starting points so you will need to experiment to find the best combinations for your taste.

    Scott, I used and still do! Forte Fortezo FN-4 - is unbelievably great and low cost (In Russia about 6 USD for 10 sheets 24x30 cm).

    I can't tell you how much I like the warmtone of JandC Classic Polywarmtone and the paper is triple weight (320g/m2) which is an added benefit in my book.

    Ole, I also use Forte Polywarmtone Ivory Museum - non contrasty and warm. Intended to give an "old" feel and it really does! I look at my landscape like it was shot 70 years ago! and I often add strong tea to the final washing - 150 years ago feeling!%)

I'd like to keep it simple with little toning and a simple developer.
    In terms of complete range of tones and control of degree of browns, there is nothing better than polysulfide toner in combination with neutral or warmtone papers. You can use Kodak Brown Toner or AGFA Viradon for this purpose.

    anybody tried the awesome FOMA Fomatone MG classic chamois 542?

    developed in FOMA's own Fomatol PW W24 it lets you have really warm - sometimes allmost greenish-brown images.

    the paper recembles Kentmere Art Classic in surface, and the warm paper base combined with the tones are truely beautifull..

    did anyone whisper Josef Sudek?....
