This is another situation where getting together with others at a local turning group may be most helpful. Some use Artisan, some Chestnut, some Homestead Finishing liquid or powder, . . .

Often I've read that as a gross generalization dyes are clearer because the color particles penetrate into the wood, where stain pigments are larger and sit on the surface of the wood.  But also, I've been told numerous times that Minwax stains are a combination of dye and pigment stain, in an attempt to get more uniform coloring.
