Try a Rico Metalite M9.

Well, I'll add another few Claude Lakey and the ubiquitous Berg Larsen

If you have to ask, please don't play a loud alto mouthpiece.

Please...

Loud is useless w/out good tone!

Dukoffs are loud, but "2 dimensional" in tone.

Runyons (Quantoms and Smoothbores) are loud, but also thin sounding

H Couf Artist Jazz are loud, but thin out on the bottom end

Claude Lakeys are loud, but are very inconsistent

Rico Metalites feel bulky and bulbous to me, and also thin out on the bottom end

Berg Larsons are loud, and after a good reface, are monster players!

But my all time favorite is the Drake Contemporary Hybrid. It's loud, has a full tone, easy to play and control, and can go down to a near whisper if you need it too. Great all around Jazz/Rock/Fusion/Funk piece!

One of the loudest I've ever played was a Jody Jazz DV.
