I have an alto metal Jazz 8, I love this mpc. It has a warm slightly dark bottom range (up to E) and it goes up to brighter and open sound in the highs. response is great although Due to wear I can see the rails arent even. the tip rail is ok though and quite thin.
equipped with a Legere 2¾ I get a brighter sound and lush bottom, If you push it you can get really loud but it still sounds good.
Hi there~ I've been with my lebayle studio metal 7 for almost a year now and still liking it~ It's a very bright mouthpiece obviously, but can be very flexible with different reeds too. But I personally don't like to "dull" down a built-to-be-bright mouthpiece by using hard/ dark sounding reeds as the sound produced is kinda "sticky", not mellow.
Overall I liked the studio metal quite alot, the crispy bright sound may or may not be appealing to one as one man's meat is another man's poison
It's even brighter and added crisp than the Dukoff.
