Re: Need a good bari mouthpiece
Sounds like that D works for you. Really, tip opening is a feature of comfort more that of tone or technique. Some say more open gives you greater flexibility and volume, some say playing closed gives you better pitch stability and control. These things are probably true, but not to the extent that a good player will be hindered by it. If you are looking to change your sound, you'd probably fiddle around with reeds or different mouthpiece designs.
