    Alright folks, I must admit I am impressed by the Gen 2 Rudy Mucks.

    I played on one that was a size a bit smaller than I was used to. I thought my tone would go down the tubes and it usually does with a smaller piece. I play a piece that is too big at times so I can get the tone I want, which hinders endurance.

    A friend of mine asked me to get a Rudy Muck that he could try. I wanted to try them to, so I did. Wow. It was smaller, but with the "chambered throat" the tone was beautiful. Improved, in fact over my other bigger pieces. And the cushioned rim is sooooooo.... comfortable. When I first played it I over shot several high notes.

    But most importantly it improved my tone! I didn't think a smaller piece could do that! I was convinced and became a Rudy Muck dealer (my store is a hobby, more or less, since I have a full-time day gig). I only sell products I truly believe in. This is one of them! Has anyone else tried the Gen 2 Mucks?

    By the 2nd generation are you talking about the ones that are tapered like a Stork piece or the bowl-shaped pieces? I have a Rudy Muck 15 S that is tapered and not bowl shaped (from the exterior, if this is getting confusing) which is the best mouthpiece for my Olds Recording. It gives it a real clean sound with a solid core. I have played a 19 C in the past, but it was the bowl type. I also had a 17 C in the tapered design that sounded great. i gave it away with a Courtois that I traded for the recording. I wish I still had that.

    I am looking to purchase a Rudy Muck mouthpiece. Where can I get to look at them? I have read there are 3 types. I want a medium deep for a richer tone but medium high register accessible. The thing I am reading look for a solution to my needs. I am a returning player after 15 years out.
    I live in Southern CA, and the Sam Ash stores list them but do not sell them except on special order with no returns. I don't think I want to do that if I am not sure about the feel.

    Can any one give advise?

    I purchased a 2nd Generation Rudy Muck 19c mouthpiece!
    I am currently using it for everything!
    My tone is bigger and more focused.
    My upper register is easier.
    But to play in the upper register I need to use less pressure than with my previous mouthpiece.
    Also I believe the reason my sound is bigger is because the opening in the throat of the mouthpiece is a little larger!!

    Also it has forced me to work on my endurance!

    If these newer second generation ones have a V cup similar to the Stork mouthpieces. Would be interesting piece to try.
