Re: METAL MOUTHPIECE, ALTO--GETTING SANBORN SOUND
Thanks for all your help.
I remember my teacher saying that he wont ever TELL me to get a certain mouthpiece, because a good player will always sound like himself regardless of the mouthpiece.
I'm guessing the different mouthpieces help in certain aspects more than others, like making altissimo easier to get to, etc. but at the same time, it might hide the flaws of the player.
I recently started jazz, like 2-3 months, and I'm progressing fast says my teacher. In 6 months to a year or so, he says I can be just as good as the kids that played w/ him for 3-4 years--granted that I practice as much as I am doing now.
When would you recommend getting a new mouthpiece?
Do you think ligature plays a big role on sound ?
