  6. General Mouthpiece Discussion
    Strange question, I understand. Here's why I ask it: a little over a week ago, I purchased this Berg Larsen 105/3M tenor piece secondhand. Now, it's my understanding that the "3" indicates a lack of a baffle, with "0" being a very high baffle. Yet, looking into the mouthpiece, I see... well...

    I play a yts-23 and I would like to know what type of mouthpiece would be best for jazz band and concert band. I can buy separate mouthpieces but a transitional one would be cool too. a recommended type of reed for jazz and/or concert would be helpful too.
