Re: Advice on Runyon Tenor Mouthpieces
I have quite a few runyon pieces, both new and old. ALL of them are great pieces, with great facing jobs from the factory. Runyon has IMO one of the highest quality controls of most any company these days.
My favorite Runyon is the Runyon Custom, I have it in a 7 facing on alto and tenor, and a 9 facing on bari sax. on soprano I use a Runyon model 88 in a 6 facing. The spoiler can cause intonation problems, but mine are all fixed by making sure I use a proper airstream. The minute you go lazy on it, thats when the intonation problems hit. Otherwise, they play great in all registers, are very powerful, and beautifully consistent. Plus they come in all those fun colors!
