I play a Brian Powell cleaned STM on my silver '50s 10M, and I also used to play a Vando Blue Java on my '62 10M unlacquered tenor. No qualm whatsoever ;)

I like my Sakshama refaced modern STM 7* on my '48 NRTH. Nice punchy but full bottom end, since that is what the OP wanted. When pushed, my PhilTone TE gives the much the same sound, but darker in the middle.

I've used Broadus, HR and metal Links, Hite Artist. All worked fine. But the Tenney Jazzmaster I'm using now is the best 'piece I've ever used on my 1936 10M. It can add a little edge when needed.

I was not very happy with my Large chamber Link maybe I need something more focused

Morgan 8*EL is amazing on Conns! A little clearer and more focused/powerful than links, but still very flexible.

Another vote for the rubber V16. The price is right. I moved from a 7 to an 8, I found the larger tip was more spread. So if you're looking for focus, try the 7 or 6. I'm playing on a Ponzol M1 now, it's just such a versatile piece, worth trying if you can find one.

Yes, most mouthpieces work very well with a 10M, personally I wouldn't like a Link but then it's whatever works for you. It's all very subjective.

EDIT:

I would normally recommend a PPT (designed for a 10M) , which is what I use, but you can't get them at the moment.

I use a new old stock Runyon made of Conn Comet blanks. I was told that the Conn Comets were issued with the 10M's of my vintage (late 1940's). My horn plays in tune, projects and has a nice spread sound.
