"A tool good enough to be so used and not too good"C.S. Lewis That Hideous Strength
I did see perhaps the coolest ever mouth piece on Ebay a few weeks ago. I think it was a Yamaha with a fairly deep rim, the rim itself was gold plated and was inscribed with a rather famous phrase, the language of Mordor in Elvish script "One Ring to Rule them All and in the Darkness Bind Them" I'm not sure if this gave you an advantage with quiet playing or made your sound a wraith like shriek but the mush iron looked very cool.

Gold feels softer, wetter, and is prettier.
Or not. It's a bit subjective. :P
I think it does. I did a blind test and could tell the difference between it an silver--not because of the sound, but because of the feel on my face.
Would make an interesting subject for a scientific experiment!

Blind tests for this don't work because we lip read. Or lip reed.
I cannot believe the good doctor spelled plaid correctly. Though I know he knows how to spell it if you take the P away. Which beats taking it here.
