What is the Brightest, Jazziest and Most-Through mouthpiece metal or hard rubber mouthpiece? And my budget is under 400 and is a tip opening around 0.81.

    Most mouthpiece makers make what you are looking for. The best maker I've found so far has been Jody Jazz mouthpieces.

      Does it have to be the metals becuase those are 500 but how about this one? It's called the Jody Jazz HR*. Is this any good?

        The HRs are great mouthpieces. I have a HR 7* on my alto.

          And lasly is the Bird Legend Series good. Because I thought about it and if I had a white moutpiece then I'd be able more recongizable to others and stand out.?

          You might try the new Jody Jazz Jet Alto mouthpiece. They advertise it as an extrenely bright mouthpiece. Personally, I don't care for a overly bright mouthpiece. Up until now, on alto, I've played mostly really old New York Meyer pieces. It's all depends on the sound you want?

          How can I get one of those? Like what website and isnt the JJ Jet plastic? I would think it wouldn't be that good. How about the V16 A6?

          Is the Bird Legend Series Mouthpieces good and is a V16 better than than the ones I wrote out earlier (the list of mouthpieces).

          If you're looking for the brightest, I'd have to agree on either V16 A5 small chamber, or Jody Jazz Metal.

          Mine is medium chamber but I playing a 1997 Vito Lebanc Student Sax and I need a new one bad. But latley people have been telling me I sound amazing but I want to sound better. Claude Laker HR, Meyer HR, JJ HR or the E Rosseau metal. Which is the best these are the good mouthpieces in my price range and I cant afford the JJ metal. HELLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Calm down, big guy.  Either the Lakey HR or JJ HR should be fine for what you want.  Brightness is a function of tip opening, baffle design, and chamber size.  No need to go to metal for a bright sound.
