I'm a ninth grader in the search of a good MPC for both concert and marching band I can't go over $100 because I'm a broke high school student. Thanks for the help in advance.

Runyon Model 88 could be yours for $53. It isn't a screamer, more in my opinion an all purpose style that leans towards jazz, but with some work it could sound good in concert and marching band. Might be able to find example recordings online.

Yamaha 5C, Hite, you may be able to find a used Rousseau or HR Link for under $100 as well. Go to woodwind and brasswind and drill down to the bari sax mouthpiece page where most of the viable options are listed.

ebay. Also, check these forums for deals. The 5c is okay... Not stellar.
Look for anything selmer paris, vandoren, otto link.. Those will almost definitely be a better bet than a yamaha 5c.

Yamaha 5C is a pretty forgiving mouthpiece and should be fine on that horn. If you want some edge, a Rico Metalite is pretty good for under $40.
If you are buying a 5C, get the ligature as they are hard to find in a good fit.
