    Re: metal or rubber mpc for bari?

    Everyone all this forum will have their own opinion, but it's going to be based on how they play. If I were you, I'd try each for a while, and decide myself. I personally think metal sounds pretty cool on bari, but at times, it doesn't fit the music. So my advice would be to buy both. Maybe a metal for jazz, and a hard rubber for legit. And maybe even another hard rubber for jazz. I don't play bari much, and when I do, I use a hard rubber piece, and that takes plenty of air, so I would imagine that a jazz metal piece for bari would take a very large amount of air. You may not even be ready for one(though I don't know your level of playing). Hope I helped, Rich

        I'm of the opinion that the material the Mpc is made of doesn't matter compared to things concerning sound, projection, ease of playing, comfort, etc. If you found a metal mouthpiece you liked, the only issues would be cost and the stigma of "metal is for rock and jazz". Try as many mouthpieces as you can and pick the one that suits you.

          Yeah, there's companies that'll send you mouthpieces to try, so have them send you a metal one and a hard rubber one. Maybe two of each. Then, you mail back the ones you don't want. One place I know of that will do that is WWBW.
