I've been playing for about five years and recently I decided that I needed an upgrade from the cheap stock mouthpieces I was using for high school concert band. I wanted an edgy and open tone, but with good control. And boy, does this piece do the trick! When I picked it up yesterday, I was so surprised on how easy it was to pump out those low notes but also speak well in the upper registers. I got a NY 7 (slightly larger tip opening) with Java Green 3 reeds and it wasn't as hard to play on as I expected. I recommend this to anyone that wants good projection without sacrificing control and tone. Vandoren ZZ reeds are a good place to start with this mouthpiece.
