    It would be a big jump, but it could be better. I would get a 1 1/2C(As rowuk did say) and see if you like it. It is not that much different, but there is a small difference. I would look at a 2C also. Still big, huge, bathtub size but a smaller rim(but not by much). It would be good for symphonic playing along with the 1 1/2C. The choice is yours.

    Frazzle, changing mouthpieces won't help your inconsistency or your neck bulging/tension. Besides neck expansion per say isn't always a problem. It has to be addressed on a case by case basis. Bill Chase's neck expanded a little when he played. My neck will expand a little depending on what I'm playing. But if your teacher thinks that it is a problem for you than it needs to be addressed.

    When you talk about consistency, how often does it happen? How long have you been with this teacher?

    There are certain basic skills that I teach my students so that consistency isn't a big problem. Oh they have good days and bad days. But usually on bad days their concentration is off. They don't have embouchure issues such as losing range.

    How long have you
