Re: Can't find a mouthpiece
I agree with the Morgan suggestion. All models offered by Morgan are fantastic players: Easy blowing, full, dark sound, good intonation, and an equally strong low and altissimo range.
Another great mouthpiece that fits the bill is the Jody Jazz HR* Vintage style mouthpiece. Superb quality and characteristics for a very reasonable price.
I've also had excellent results from many of Santy Runyon's mouthpieces.
If you are looking for metal, my current favorite among my vast collection (I need help) is the David A. Zagar "Cool School" Mouthpiece. Although some have compared it to a Dukoff "Hollywood" style, it very much reminds me of my vintage Otto Link "Florida Link" model, only better IMHO.
All of the above mouthpieces are great value for what is a relatively low price as quality mouthpieces go, i.e. under $200.00.
