I stumbled across way too many mouthpieces all at once, so here is a spot to display them!
First up - Soprano pieces - 10mfan Virtuoso 5* vs Arnold Montgomery Ankh 7
I receieved the Virtuoso just this week and am in love! Its so easy to play. I was amazed how short and fat the little thing was too - I got a Rovner Platinum lig fit to it, but also have a Rovner Light, and a BARI brand 2 screw lig that fits it.
I receieved the Ankh from Avel Sound Concept, and it is stellar as well. Beautifully made piece, crazy design. I love the tone, but I will say - not nearly as easy to play as the Virtuoso, even with softer reeds to compensate for the tip.
On Tenor - A Bob Dukoff Hollywood .108! A dream piece of mine, I decided to test this one over the B&I TOTM, thanks Guido for the lovely tune. I tried to do some Dexter Gordon songs, but decided I would need more practice time to work those up. I love this thing, even if I don't prefer it over my other mouthpieces.
Alto - Otto Link Tone Master .061 Refaced by Maxime of Avel Sound Concept - Wonderfully done work and this thing is singing beautifully. This was my last bit of time to record today, so I went with my all time favorite Hodges track - What's the Rush for a single chorus.
Also, a Jody Jazz DV 7 on alto thats featured in my video for the regular TOTM:
