If you had to pick just 1 tenor mouthpiece to use for everything (except concert band/legit stuff) what would it be? No switching pieces for different styles/situations. Just one piece to use for jazz/blues/funk/pop/rock/accoustic/electric/small group/big band/post bop/swing/straight ahead/fusion/smooth jazz/anything I left out.

Mine is a Morgan EL.

So what is your pick?

HR Otto Link SP 7.
Ben, What's the "SP" mean?

Anyway, for me it would be any HR Link-like piece in a 7 - 7* range. Could be a well-behaved (aka refaced) Tone Edge or Slant, a Morgan 8L or 8EL, a Tenney Jazzmaster or Slant, Lamberson J6, etc. I'm sure there are others.

I used to have a blue Jumbo Java T97(?) that basically did it all. (It looked like someone had taken down the baffle a little bit.) I regret selling that one! Still, I have high hopes for the FL Spectruoso I've been using the last couple days. Obviously not the same edge, for rock/pop stuff, as the Jumbo Java, but it's pretty darn flexible.

It's a model that was out Briefly 2-3 years ago. Apparently they were made from older molds. Brian Powell claims they are just like slants, just with the modern rubber.

my EZ .105 short shank soloist.

though I'm trying out other pieces I never actually play ( perfom, rehearse) on any other piece. I used it for over 6 months now and it looks like I'm going to stick with it.
