With all the mouthpieces I've tried over the last few years the thing that strikes me as the most different is the resistance levels. What do you guys think about in terms what makes good or bad resistance? Does a certain level or lack of resistance help you?

Good resistance = something to 'push' against to allow you to put a lot of air into the horn and achieve a big, fat, resonant sound.

Bad resistance = stuffiness, resulting in a dead, dull sound.

I have no idea at all what makes the difference between good & bad resistance, but I know it when I feel it.
This was more my question. I know for the most what makes a piece resistant or free but how much is good and how much is bad?
