How do these two Tenor mouthpieces compare to one another?
How does the new Precision focustone compare to the handcrafted models & the acoustimiser focustone? Are they the same internal dimensions?The internal geometries are not the same and the extent that each are hand-finished are very different. The result will be a very different response and overall sound.
The Precision, Handcrafted and Acoustimer ResoTone all share very similar internal geometry in their designs. BUT ... Handcrafted models are from lost wax casting so there is a certain amount of variation in that that comes from casting and finishing. The ResoTone is similar again but it's a moulded piece that requires extensive hand work to get them to size etc. With the Precision, it's machined to a very high level to two size ranges 7*, so there is a greater consistency as a starting point before it gets to the bench.How does the new Precision focustone compare to the handcrafted models & the acoustimiser focustone?

I have an LR II that is better than the link I had been using for 10 years, but on alto I just bought an Acoustimax to replace my 20 year old chipped up link, and it sounds so nice and clear that I'm wanting the similar vibe on tenor (which is my main horn). I mean, it's ridiculous, after playing alto with the acoustimax I start wanting to just play alto, until then it had been settled that tenor is my vibe.....The metal Lebayle's I had, LR and LRII were as badly faced as Berg's. One LR was so bad that it wasn't even possible to correct. Klum's work you can count on, but his facing curve may not work for you.
