Okay, so I'm not entirely sure where this should go, so feel free to move it to the relevant area!

I bought a Meyer Metal 7J mouthpiece about 6 months ago for me alto and I've been getting on with it pretty well. I know Meyer Metal's aren't all that common but after go through quite a number of mouthpieces, I came out with this one.

One big problem I do have with it though, is that it has a really small throat (I'm not entirely sure of the technical term, but the bit where the mouthpiece attaches to the neck). When I first got the mouthpiece because it was so tight it pretty much ruined my cork, so I got it recorked. I've sanded it down as much as a dare, but now every time I use my mouthpiece I seem to use ridiculous amounts of grease just to get it far enough in the neck so that I'm in tune!

Any ideas guys?

Thanks,
Sam

Yeah man, I had the same problem with the Meyer Metal 6. I didn't sand, just used lots of cork grease each time and now it doesn't seem so bad.
