    He's right regarding the Committee... But I am blessed with the valves faster than my Recordings on that horn... but this horn is a dirty slotting horn, and that's what give it the beauty I enjoy in playing in small jazz ensembles. Therefore, I like a mouthpiece that gives me room to play with additional puffs of air, to give the Committee more material to color with.

    I love the Harrelson for a completely opposite reason. That horn is as accurate as a laser. In all ranges. For that a mouthpiece that directs the flow into the horn is the best for me. I like the Jettone Studio B with that horn.

    Interesting in that Jason Harrelson supports this idea with the post that Ted provided a few posts ago.

    4. Do not switch mouthpieces. I recommend using the same mouthpiece for the entire acclimation period. Choose the mouthpiece that is most comfortable and enduring to you. Do not choose a mouthpiece that is too wide a diameter or too deep a cup. Though large mouthpieces produce a very nice sound, only a small percentage of players find them suitable for daily playing. Choose a mouthpiece that feels comfortable first. Your concept of sound will develop into reality with almost any mouthpiece.
