I am a beginner on soprano sax and I played Bari mouthpiece a few months ago for a very short time. I ordered a Bari 0.060(the smallest tip). I find it very hard to blow even with a Rico Royal 2.0 reed. Later I shift to a Super session F. In my opinion SS is better than Bari. Maybe you can handle it better since you are an oboe player. I heard several people playing Bari 66. Just my two cents.
I have a Bari-brand soprano mouthpiece. It is okay but not MY favorite. Questions like yours are impossible to answer. You may LOVE the Bari while the next guy hates it. Same with all mouthpieces . . . this is something you MUST do on your own. DAVE
BARI .060/.062 is kinda medium tip opening. Just got a hard rubber type myself for soprano and it totally outplayed a Selmer S-80. Much smoother sounding and quite good in fact, for a stock mpc. (They are manually inspected at end control at factory!) Personal fav for me would be the Soprano Planet Missing Link series, but that is at a different pricetag.....
