Help would be wonderful, ha

16, male, Nj - I know this will probably make everybody who reads this basically want to slap me but for tenor I currently play a Cannonball Big Bell Global Series,(i play a selmer mark vii for all the selmer players out there so you don't totally hate me) So i play a cannonball, I choose it because of overall sound quality and was astonished by how much more in tune they were then the Yamaha Customs. Anyway, the selmer stock mouthpeice sux balls and I definately need a new mouthpeice, but I'm having a hard time choosing which mouthpeice to get. My teacher sugested a hard rubber Jody Jazz mouthpeice, but i have always wanted a metal mouthpeice for the sax. What are some mouthpeices that would be worthwhile looking at metal or rubber, what ligature should a get to go with it aswell. Thanks to all who respond

      I've been using a Jody Jazz HR with a 115 tip opening and it kicks butt! It sounds hard rubber, but you can push it and get some good edge and balls (not the suckin' kind) . I also have used Links and a Berg (110/2) to good effect. The tone of each is unique, so try a few out and see what you dig. P.S. Don't need to apologize for playing a Cannonball- whatever you can make YOUR music on is just fine!
