Hi.
I'm a newer member here...and a relatively new sax player (just started a few months ago) I'm playing a Barrington 402 Tenor with size 2 Vandoren ZZ reeds...and the plastic stock mouthpiece...
I'm wanting to get something a step up without breaking the bank...A good Jazz mouthpiece for less than $40-$50.
Please give me some suggestions...

A used (but not vintage) Meyer hard rubber 5M or 6M can be had for $50 or $60 sometimes. I found my 5M to be a nice balanced piece, with a more defined tone than the starters, but easy to step up to, and no issues on high notes, low notes or intonation.

you can pick up runyons, hr cheaper, the yamaha 4/5c is a good solid mouthpiece which wont break the bank and will play.
meyers hr you can get them here and there.
for under 60$ you should get a decent piece.

mmm kay!
Well sorry its been a while since i've been here.
I got a C5 and was so impressed i went and got a B5 as well...its got a real nice balance between bright and dark tone. I also came across a mouthpiece branded Selmer. It feels like plastic but idk...i think it may be a stock selmer cuz its not like a classical piece such as the C80. Its nondescript other than the name selmer. its got a really nice dark tone though so i like it. I'm happy with my new mouthpieces...wayy better than the stock one!
