Alto & tenor mpc tip opening ratio

1697 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.

This is very true. Notice that Tomsch uses a higher baffle piece on his tenor than the other two horns. Higher baffles need larger tip sizes.
Are you sure? Unless his alto piece does not have as much baffle as my old instructor's RPC-B (for tenor) that is probably his highest baffled piece.
