    He failed to clarify thanks to his poor grammar and spelling - I thought he meant "matching" rather than "marching" - his spelling was "maching" so I had to interperet that by filling in the blank on the misspelled word, and I went the other way.

    I've got nothing more for this kid - I was MARCHING and gigging professionally before he was even a gleam in his daddy's eye, but apparently my advice is of no use or consequence to him because at age 17/18 he's "a well read educated musician." Apparently there is nothing left to teach him.

With the Schilke mouthpiece you should be OK, but sometimes it is hard to get a good horn/mouthpiece match and you might want to try the paper trick (look it up at the Bob Reeves website) to increase the gap a little bit.
    I contend that the issue here is not his horn or his mouthpiece.

    At 18 a lot of us had our pants full of stuff that we had to eat during the years following our indestructability.

    Anyone with half a brain knows that the more you know, the less you talk about it. The rest of us are well read and educated (me included).

    I think this kid has a problem. He won't get much money for the Bach, but wants another horn that will give him more range and endurance. Fairy dust is expensive on Ebay these days.

    HEY if the OP is still here -- and willing to listen -- he can go out and buy Keith Fiala's setup (an Austin Winds 470 -- and Keith's mpc) --- or quite frankly he could follow the link and go to Keith's website --
    there are many helpful tips -- not just on equipment -- but also "low pressure" + air + playing relaxed --- CONFIDENT but NOT COCKY

    and my help in this posts is that each of the players I listed on youtube --ALL have a different horn -- YET they are all very good!!!!!!! (ok the 2 Kilties with the G sopranos likely have the same set up))

    OH - I forgot this guy can play also --
    and hopefully if a "picture is worth a 1000 words" - then a video must be worth much more --- I hope the OP is able to learn something from all of this
