why not try out a metal beechler? they're great comtemporary mouthpieces. try different facings cuz they will sound differnt. Ex. a 7 will sound brighter than an 8 facing!

very bright and powerful for hard rubber. the small chamber makes this mpc less freeblowing than most . tunes sharper due to small chamber. lakey and runyon bionex are similar

Yeah, I don't care for the tuning issues, but it is like Dan says. You may want to go a little more open to a 6 or 7 to be able to move the pitch easier and to make it blow freer.

Personally I prefer the M chamber DI's. The Beechler M is brighter than a Meyer.

I tried the S7S alto and it scared the crap out of me:) Very bright, penetrating and loud. I couldn't use it, but I could see somebody wanting to have one in his or her arsenal.

I was playing in Israel recently with Robert Anchipolovsky and Opher Shapiro.
Robert plays on one of these Beechlers, I think it's a 6s, and sounds just fine. You can see some videos of us here (I'm in the white shirt, Robert in Red, Opher in Brown).

Cool, thanks for all the info. I tend to lead more towards the hard rubber pieces on alto. I often find metal to be too bright and buzzy. However, I do like a somewhat bright sound for the upper range.

Besides making generalizations, how can we tell you how it will work for you? Play it and tell us what you think. How a mouthpiece works for you depends on lot on who you are and how you play.
You're absolutely right, however I was just asking for other opinions. If I could find a retailer nearby that carried the piece I'd just give it try. Asking for others' feedback and giving a little in return is pretty much the whole point of this forum, no?? Thanks for the advice anyways. :)
