    Patric,
    we are not talking about "megatones". Those are heavy mouthpieces designed to be heavy. Their use is controversial, just like any mouthpiece discussion is.

    We are talking about weighted sleeves that fit over conventional mouthpieces to make them heavier.

    Whether or not your tone is "amazing" with or without a megatone is an issue best left up to your audience. We have a saying in Germany: "Eigenlob stinkt".

    TY for all your input. I was just wondering. I have no problem with projection at all. I was just wondering why they're out there. I love playing in the kitchen with the accoustics.

    most beginners start with 7c. A 1 would be for someone who's very experienced.

    Ahhhh ok. I get cha now.

    About my tone. I'm sure you've heard American Elegy by Frank Tichele. (sorry if I mispelled his last name) Anyways, I think the both the audience and the band decided after I played that with tears and a standing ovation. I just wish I had a decent microphone so I could record without having to wrap my mic in socks and towels.
