    Jonster,Why dont you try a 3c bach Megatone.I play the 1 1/2 c Mega and its easier to play than my standard 1 1/2c.Its also much darker,richer and robust than the standard bach.The extra mass gives it the sound character and it has a slightly larger throat than the standard model which for me makes it more flexible.I dont think many people play them,but I like mine.

    You're gonna get a million different arguments about what mouthpieces you should use and why. but the answer (givin on the rest of the "which one should i use" equipment related threads) is what works for you. If you are in the market for a new mouthpiece, just go to a store where they have all these different brands and try them all. if you got 315$ to spend, go for it. if you find a 35$ stock bach mouthpiece that works for you, go for it.
