Hey all,

Earlier this year I purchased a new mouthpiece for my alto, which I love. The mouthpiece checks all of the boxes for me, and I'd love to continue playing it.

The issue is that the size of the bore is extremely large for my current neck cork. As a high school student, I find myself switching between this mouthpiece and my Selmer S80 multiple times a week. I've been getting by with teflon tape, but I'd prefer a better solution.

I've seen some people online resize the bore of their mouthpiece with materials like epoxy. I may be interested in having this done to better fit on my neck, but I'm wondering if this could affect the sound of my mouthpiece. I'm not a mouthpiece expert, and I worry that having something like this done could affect how my mouthpiece plays.

Does anybody have any experience with this? I'm unsure if I'd be willing to do it, but I've had enough with the teflon tape. Currently using one mouthpiece doesn't seem to be an option. I'm extremely happy with my classical setup, and my jazz setup is great except for this issue.

Thanks!

Simply apply a few coats (as many as needed) of fingernail polish in the mouthpiece bore.
