    I have a 302 that is IMO very versatile. Very BIG sound with an edge that can be controlled. Maynard liked the 307 better! So, I don't think you can go wrong with that (and you may sound like Maynard :roll:).

    But then he'd have another problem.....He'd own a Pinto!


    But on the mpc thing, why not try something like a Curry Z cup?

    I'm gonna be checking out GR, I've heard good things about Curry as well, though I am not familiar with the mouthpieces.

    I have the Curry 1.25M, which is close to the Z cup. It's nice, probably my favorite non-Prana mp .... I'm using the 14A4A because it matches better with my Recording, but the Currys have very comfortable rims.

    Again, not to be contentious, have folks listen to you and have a teacher work with you. You're not a pro and to the point (yet ;-)) where you can use 5 or 6 different mpcs and not have it affect you and it may be a mute point if those that hear you say you sound fine. It's also w-a-a--a-a-a-y cheaper.

    I would have mentioned the 66Z, but I wasn't sure if you were willing to shell out that much for a mouthpiece. Are you going to take a lesson with Scott Apelgren then?

    I would go for something probably closer to a 64 or a 63 personally (I think) -- and if the mouthpiece does what I want it to, I'd be willing to pay. Who's Scott Apelgren?

    The Gr consultant in Florida, he owns a shop in Melbourne (not idea where that is in Florida).

    Ah ok. Yeah Melbourne is down south, about an hour and a half from my home in Daytona. Worth a stop? I think so. Probably would be over winter break though
