Hello, I'm considering buying a Meyer alto hard rubber mpc . Been practicing Alto now for about 2 years. Thought the upgrade would benefit me. I notice they are numbered 5 to 9 , and sm., med., and large ; " facing " .. What do these values mean to me, and how do I select the ;' correct' mpc ? Can I assume a 7 med is ' average' and therefore correct for me ? Any advice on this ? Thanks, Rich :|

Why do you think you need a new mouthpiece? Are you studying with a teacher? A teacher would be able to point you in the right direction.

I think the 4c is a good match for your horn. when considering another, what kind of music are you playing? A mouthpiece is an important factor in the sound you want, soft, loud brassy, mellow, along with your reed and technique. finding that perfect match to your horn is sometimes elusive. maybe go to the music store and test drive some. I play an old Meyer myself, and recommend a vintage piece over new ones. happy shopping!
