    Re: Denis Wick mps

    I thought about buying this a little while back as well. I decided not to because it looks too bulky to actually manage wisely, and it could be pretty faulty since you'd have to re-adjust it each time. I settled on a Holton Tone INTENSIFIER instead, and I've seen a pretty good improvement in my ability to slot above High G.

    Why are you interested in this tool?

    trpteddrumaner12,

    I use DW booster, but you obviously misunderstood their statement :

    The only thing the thing does is minimizing vibrations by adding weight.

    I would like to get some feedback from all those who are currently using some form of a mouthpiece add-on. There are so many different varieties, and quite honestly, I can't imagine that they're really all that different.

    That is a bit odd that they dont fit on their own mouthpieces...

    Re: Denis Wick mps

    Again, a dumb question...
    Are these "tone booster" devices just something that one uses temporarily during practice to help move to a new level of tone or range or something? Or are they used for practice permanently? Or are they used for actual playing? If so, for what typed of engagements? When I watch videos of Wynton, or Maynard, or Doc or even Tine Thing Helseth (who has to have one of the best tones ever), I don't see evidence that they use these for playing but then I don't necessarily know what I am looking for. Anybody have a clarification since this is a new concept for me?

    People use these if they dont want to pay for a new mouthpiece tha gives them a deeper tone, you may not see that they have tone boosters but like wynton marshallis and famous people have like some kind of weight on their mouthpieces..

    I used DW tone booster sleeve on my Bach mouthpiece and it looks really nice. Any change in tone seems not really noticeable. However I'm currently using one of their mouthpieces and it's great!
