    You're wanting a jazz piece, I presume. I use a Morgan 8M for most of my jazz work and a stainless Berg 85/2 M for a more contemporary sound. Keep that Meyer if it works well for you, and beware of G.A.S.!

      Morgans are great, but if you have the money from selling your Jupiter, check out some old NY Meyers and rubber Links (Reso Chamber, Florida, Early Babbitt, etc...).

    Thanks very much, and more recommendations are welcome. Yeah a jazz mouthpiece, guess i forgot to say that outright. I'm not too big on what I guess a lot of people would call a 'contemporary' sound. I actually try to sound more like a tenor in respects of a jazz voice, (MUCH MUCH) less Kenny G clarity and more of a Sonny Rollins growl, so those older Otto's and meyers sound like good ideas. Thanks and by the way BlackFrancis, as in Frank Black the guitar player for the Pixies?

        That would be Black Francis, the Irish highwayman (talk about old school). But the Pixies will do nicely too, thank you!
