    Never tried one myself, but I have a couple of friends playing on Pomarico wood mouthpieces and they're very satisfied. Norwegian jazz saxophonist Petter Wettre plays on Pomarico wood...

      They're very warm and mellow. The wood absorbs a lot of the overtones, and yes, they do sound more like a clarinet. They're great if you play Glenn Miller stuff, or anything where you want a silky smooth tone. They are somewhat fragile though. I have a Pomarico for alto that's pretty cool.
