Classical Solo Tenor Saxophone Mouthpiece

Hi, I've been playing CLassical solos on a Brillhart Ebolin 3* for three years. I feel that I now need a larger opening for more sound, and am in the market for a new classical mouthpiece. Any suggestions for a new mpiece? Thanks for the help. JOHN

    Try a Selmer CS80 w/ a C* Opening. I find it great for classical. It's also versitile, and can be used for a bright Jazz sound with the right reeds. -Andrew

      C* is to closed for tenor, though it does work great on alto. get an S80 or S90 in a D facing or larger would be good. Also look into a Meyer piece

          I'd stay with the Brilhart Ebolin. Great piece for classical and orchestra use. I used one for years. Maybe try a more open facing.

          I use a Selmer Metal Classic or a Soloist, both in 'E'
