I think I can get a nice sound from my Bach Strad 43G (made about 2006) with a Bach 3C mouthpiece, but I'm now trying to play more mellow having listened to some Chris Botti pieces (esp Regroovable from his "very best of..." album). But it doesn't seem to work...
Can anybody suggest a technique to achieve this mellow sound? Or a new mouthpiece suggestion? Or is mellow out of reach for my Strad? (Chris Botti plays a Martin Committee horn from the 1930's I think I read, and coincidentally a Bach 3C mouthpiece)
