That is a bummer. I cant get over how good mine is. I guess like with most machined mp's, is can be a bit of hit and miss. I have bought a 7 and and 8 and they were both great.I received the soprano size 6 tip and it is awful to play. Seems very unbalanced and not the tip size that it is marked. I will be picking up the 8 tip today hopefully it will be better quality. A genuinely beautiful mouthpiece that will require a reface to be a real player.
Right on!That is a bummer. I cant get over how good mine is. I guess like with most machined mp's, is can be a bit of hit and miss. I have bought a 7 and and 8 and they were both great.
Hi... and yes! I'm quoting my own previous post! Why? Because first impressions can, and many times are, wrong!Just recieved my mp today... only played for 2 min (realy just 2 min) because of the time/hours... here's my "2 min first impression":
- Feels better quaçity than expected! Nice overall finish
- baught a #7 tip and got to say it feels more like a #6... it's extremely easy to play... almost no resitence! I usally play a Vandore java A45, and by comparison, this mp is like blowing out a couple of candles. I used a Vandoren ZZ #3 reed... Imabe using a stringer reed will help.
- Sound is pleasant... but if we coinsider it's a $20 mp than it's a good buy. At higher octaves it can get a little to bright (at least for my taste). specially on my Yamaha 62. Tomorrow i'll try it on my old Buffet Crampon that is a more resistant and "deeper sounding" horn
