Hey, I purchased my first vintage horn a while back and I was looking for a mouthpiece to match. I currently play on a Link STM 7. It's nice and all but I don't think it really matches up with the Chu. I'm kind of looking for a sound that can scream when I want it to and really get that great Conn resonance. I saw a thread pretty similar to this but it was difficult to find answers. My price range is about 200.

Im guessing the thread mentioned was mine. The answer ended up being "keep the STM...". Mine's a tenor though. It seems to be a good answer in that it's a cheap solution that sounds good. The bad news is you won't get to exercise your GAS with that answer. ;).

I play on a similar Chu alto, and there are 3 pieces which work awesomely for me:
. HR Kessler Custom 7 (a surprise find - yet this one is custom-worked on to Meyer 6MM profile)
. Modern Brilhart 3* (worked on by PhilTone to .078 opening)
. Theo's Gaia HR 8 (I had a great price on this piece - which I could afford the size 7 though)
The first two pieces are very much within the price tag of $200. The last one, if you're lucked out, you might find a used one for ~ $300
Sorry, but this wouldn't help much to GAS controlling issue !

My main alto (out of 20+) is a pre-Chu and I use a Selmer Super Session D. You may like the E or even the F better. Chamber matches up well and it carries well with a good full sound.
