    I had posted an earlier question about the Schilke 20d2d and im trying to decide whether to settle for the 20d2d or the 15c4. Which is truly the better mouthpiece?

    Thats like asking what's better, size 9 or size 13 Air Jordans. Both quality shoes but for different people. No difference with Schilke mpc's.. What are you trying to do/play? Which is more comfortable for the task at hand? Since I've never met you or heard you just go with the 20d2d. Hope for you sake ( and your wallet), I guessed right. Hey I got a 50/50 chance!

    Im using it mainly for concert work for the most part. I also have a pretty large embouchure. So i was thinking the wider mouthpiece would fit me better.

    Re: Schilke Mouthpieces

    Well they're both big. The 20 is .700 inches and the 15 is .670. Which is closer to what you normally play (if you know)? .03 is a big difference mpc wise.

    I normally play on a Bach 3C or 5C.

    You're going to feel like you fell into ocean on the 20. the 15 is closer to what you're playing and may cause less of a problem. Are you just looking for a sound change? If so, a deeper cup w/o a size change may get the job done. I play a Giardinelli 5S most of the time, but switch to a 5B (very deep) and it doesn't even sound like the same horn.

    A 14 is what I've played previously. It's worth a try.

    Re: Schilke Mouthpieces

    You could possibly try a Giardinelli 3B if you are looking for a deep/dark sound. It's about the same as the 15's rim size. you can find it on e-Bay now and with shipping, it's under $25. If it's not right, you've spent less money.

    Here's the link to the 3B I mentioned. I've bought from the guy before, so it's "safe" (as safe as e-Bay can be)!
