    Just felt like adding a littttle more to this post.

    People always go on here and ask "What mouthpiece should I use?"
    The thing is, mouthpieces are such personal pieces of equipment... each individual selects a mouthpiece based off of their preferences, playing style, and "facial geometry (structure)" (Rowuk)
    Clearly, we all will have our own opinions then. Of course, some mouthpieces will be advocated by more, because it may be more friendly to the average player. When you are selecting a mouthpiece, however, you are looking for what's best for YOU. Sometimes this is best done with the help of another that has experience with mouthpieces, but it can only really be done by TRYING BEFORE BUYING, no matter the reputation of the mouthpiece, for an optimal match with you.

    Unfortunately much as I agree with you Mark there a lot of problems to trying before you buy at least in the UK (I have posted about this before) this I think is why people like to at least have an idea baout what mihgt suit them before they go on safari

    Last time I was in London Phil Parker had a shoe box full of the greatest assortment of s/h mps I have seen. I bought a Bach E2 1/2 C with a 117 backbore and they gave me a Selmer 4.

    Regards, Stuart.

    only change your mouthpiece if you are trying to correct a problem not just because the calendar changes

    I don't know where you are in relation to these folks The Horn Section, but contact them. They are a GR dealer and can really assist you in a mouthpiece selection, GR or otherwise.
    If you are dead set on getting an "new" mouthpiece, don't do it on your own.
