    It depends on tip opening, chamber size, and baffle size. Material (metal, hard rubber) has very little to do with sound.

      I agree, I have both a Meyer 5M Hard Rubber Mouthpiece and a Meyer Metal Jazz 5J metal mouthpiece. They both play very well, but I prefer the metal, it seems more free blowing to me. I use Rico Orange Box Reeds 2 strength, and I get a good tone, and can rip into altissimo! Of course, I can do that on the hard rubber piece, but it's much easier on the metal piece. The metal piece also works on C-Melody and Bb Tenors, I've found.

    Go to my site www.jasonkendallmusic.com I play a Selmer SBA 1952 with RICO ROYAL 3 on a Meyer 6J Metal Mouthpiece very easy to control
