  1. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Hi all, I bought a Jumbo Java A35 in hopes of gaining a brighter, more powerful sound. For the past eleven years, I've played on a Meyer 5, but I feel I've done all I can with the mouthpiece. So I got my Jumbo Java, and my first impression isn't what I expected. There's way more resistance...

  9. Sax vs. Sax, Mpc vs. Mpc, etc.
