I had the J29 and B29 Tenor mp's.The J model was as they say,very warm and jazzy,free blowing also.It is a very nice sounding piece and there so well made and i just bought a Brancher J21 Metal soprano mp that i was wanting for a while as i thought it would be nice like the tenor version and wow,i love it.The tenor mp is very round in sound and would please many people i think,there that good.Ligature is a work of art also.
I had a Brancher J-27 on trial at home many months ago. It was very free-blowing and had a jazzy Berg Larsen kind of tone that also was very versatile. I liked it a lot, but probably an LJ (no longer available made) would have suited me better as I like "the big tone" of large chamber mouthpieces.
I am currently playing a Brancher tenor J 27 and I must say it is great fun, very easy playing (with Ponzol reeds 2,5) and I really look forward to get my Super 20 tenor back (which was repadded by a friend so I left my Ponzol M1 105 in the case for him to play the horn with my favourite mouthpiece).
I like this mouthpiece so much that I am seriously contemplating the possibility to buy a similar one one alto too.
Funny enough, I disagree and any similarities with a Berg Larsen this is a much darker piece and has a ease of play that , with this opening, I've never had with any Bergs that I've ever tried , besides manufacturing of this piece has to be among the most precise and best ever achieved in a production piece.
