    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking about changing my mouthpiece, not the size, I'm using a 1 1/2 B Bach and it's nice to me. I want to change the brand and I was thinking in a GR, Curry,ACB. It's a good idea?is something better(not Monette, too much for me) or this is like the size and the brand is the one wich fit better for me?

    It's impossible in my country to try mouthpices, maybe you can help me.

    I agree with Franklin, don't try to fix something if it's not broken. Bach makes good quality mouthpieces.

    I would say this, in Uruguay you may be facing difficulties with finding a decent tech for instrument repairs when they become necessary.

    Dont think that this will not happen it will, When you suffer an issue requiring a fix can you guarantee to have your instrument returned and working in time for the next rehearsal/gig/lesson. This could be a major issue some techs have a long waiting list stretching into months.

    If not then buy a second instrument that will keep you playing while your primary instrument is with the tech or in transit. When you buy a second instrument you get a second mouthpiece for free, make sure it is a different one to the one you have. A Bach 1 1/2 C would make sense I believe it would play and feel similar to the mouthpiece you have already and give slightly different tonality.

    You then have 2 mouthpieces to take on gigs and can choose whichever you prefer.
