Upgrade mouthpiece of Jupiter tenor sax
Hello everyone, new here so be gentle.. :)
I have a tenor jupiter saxophone medium range cose (€1500~). I bought it 4 years ago to
use it in a philharmonic band, but am not play in the band any more. Now i am using it for for soloing on rock/jazz jumming, small gigs with friends and live performance occasionally.
When I bought it, I get a ligature also, so am not using the one came with the instrument, but I kept the mouthpiece (C4)since I did nt have any issues with it. Is been 4 years now and even I dont have any issues I would like to upgrade my mouthpiece to something better...I prefer my sound a bit dark and deep and a bright tone on high register when am playing loud..I aming to get a mouthpiece with smoother, warmer low notes since low notes are not very good on my current one..
So I try Selmer S80 C*, found it very nice warm middle and low notes but terrible high notes, and out of tune moving from one register to the other, I have try Vandoren T27 v5, and found it similar to my stock one but not any better. Lastly I have try the Vavdoren T45 Java which was a bit better from mine on low register but worst on high.. :)
So the question is what to look for regarding mouthtips, chambers etc in order to get a better mouthpiece of my stock one? What is C4 comparng to Selmer C* to start understant what i need to look for?
Do you have any recomendations on what I should try?
Sorry for the long post, but am lost more and more avery time I google :)
I will appreciate any feedback/comments you may have regarding my question!
