Alto & tenor mpc tip opening ratio

1678 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  Martinman
I am working on a Meyer Alto mpc of tip opening about 0.073". That suits me well.

I intend to buy a same model of Meyer Tenor mpc. I am not sure the tenor tip opening that would suit me.

Is there a handy formula or ratio that I can translate alto tip opening to tenor tip opening?

Much thanks.

I'll third the motion. I use a .050 on soprano (I hardly ever play it, and frankly I wouldn't want anyone to hear me playing it), a .075 on alto, and a .095 on tenor.
