Re: help on alto meyer mouthpiece
Oklahoma Sax, I too was raised in a little town in Oklahoma!! There are better places to be for a jazz musician, but I learned things there that couldn't be learned in NYC!!
Small town America didn't stop me from being a fairly successful musician. (Google Barry Kelsey)
The mouthpiece you have is probably better than the newer Meyers. The old Meyers are great and very expensive, if you can get someone to part with one.
If I were you I'd try Jody Jazz hard rubber pieces.
Good luck in you Quest.......Kelsey
