Re: hey- I'm new, would like some advice as to where to start
I would recommend that you try a few different mouth pieces to find the one that works best with you and your horn. some horns respond better to certain mouth pieces than others. There's a Dukoff metal piece that I have seen many Selmer players use, and it really makes a Mk VI or a Reference stand out, but I haven't a clue what model it is. I use a vintage Otto Link Super Tone Master that's about 40 years old, or a Meyer 7 for jazz on my 10M.
