    the kind that you like. you're probably gonna want to try as many as you can get your hands on. What kind of sound are you after..how long have you been playing..how much do ya wanna spend..lots of questions..that said..Berg Larsen..Otto Link..Meyer...Phil Barone..Yanigasawa..even the cheap Ricos..all good pieces in their own ways..

      I personally like Eugene Rousseau Classic pieces. I played on a 4R in high school on a YBS 61, and that was really good. I moved up to a 5R because the 4R was restricting for my playing style. Although I don't play on a Yamaha bari full time, I got a chance to play both a YBS 52 and 62 with my 5R. I generally don't like the feel of the 52, but it sounded good. I prefer the 62's sound and feel with my piece over the 52, but it is of course a professional horn (which actually doesn't matter for the sound, just the keywork). Hope this helps! -Lawrence
