Need help buying a Bari Sax.

Hey! I am currently a Middle School student playing ONLY Jazz style of music. I'll be playing in Mt. Spokane Highschool Jazz bands soon (Supposidly they are some of the best bands in the country), so I need a nice Bari to play on. Right now, I'm using a Cannonball Big Bell Stone Series Bari from my school, and I love it! BUT, I'm open to other Baris out there to buy. Budget is not really a huge problem. What would you suggest.

Also, I need a mouth piece. Every body has suggested Berg Larson Metal Bari mouthpiece to me, so I think I'll get that. BUT, I have NO clue what measurments to get! 

Help please! :)

    If budget is not a problem, the Yanigasawa is quite nice......

    I'd say for you to play on a school bari until you get a little older....if then you are still wanting to be a bari player, go to medical school!!!

      Your inquiry about finishes as a seeming top priority item is rather disturbing as well. As a musician seeking a serious musical tool, this purely cosmetic detail is the LAST thing to worry about.

          Which means he needs to be assisted in learning what is important all the more Barry. I wish I had recieved that sort of help with priorities in selecting an instrument when I was his age.
