Someone let me borrow their older Meyer 6m and I really liked it. It had the perfect tip opening size to switch from my metal 105 Berg to the Meyer, and the mpc played great. Well, I had to return that mpc to my friend and I bought myself a Meyer 6m from wwbw. This one does not feel like the other one at all. I think the tip opening may be smaller because It sounds less bright and doesn't play as well. I can't put as much air through the thing, either. I can barely switch between my Berg and it. Am I better off wasting over $20 shipping on a $100 piece sending it back to wwbw and getting a bigger opening like an 8 or 7, or can I get the thing refaced or something? Thanks a lot for your help.

What country are you in? Return s/h should be less the $10 pretty much world wide. I'd send it back. That is what the return policy is for.

Its been a while since I sent one back. They used to not charge the fee.

If you are in the US, you can probably send it back regular mail w/ delivery conf for $2.90.

I would actually have them send 3 more MPs. Maybe two 7s and an 8. If you can find a good one, it is worth the extra fees. Investing in a good mouthpiece is a bigger bang for the buck than, for example, upgrading your sax. Make sure your current sax is leak free and regulated. Then upgrade your mouthpiece.

i have one...but i really don't like it, might just be how small the opening is, or that my reeds are shot, but i can't get the air through my cannonball. When i do the sound is a little ugly and out of tune...
