Alto & tenor mpc tip opening ratio

1679 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 use a 0.65 on soprano, 0.80 on alto (although I could use a larger tip opening), and .117 on tenor. The key for me is not just the tip opening but the overall design of the mpc.
