I currently play on a Selmer s80 C. I really do not like how closed the tip on the mouthpiece is, and would prefer a round chamber, not square. I've checked out the Vandoren V5. Anyone have any other suggestions?

This is for a purple logo YAS-62. Im looking for a classical mouthpiece that has a round chamber and a relatively open tip (probably something equivalent to a E facing....not positive though..). Thanks.

The Rousseau's are nice. Try the R or the NC's. If you want to go a bit darker you could try a Morgan 3C. A vintage Selmer Airflow would have a nice round chamber if you can find one.

A28 Vandoren, round throat, large chamber and more open then a C*. I like them, i toss up between that and my S90 180(refaced to about 200) everytime i set up my sax.

Selmer S90 i find to have a more complex sound but the A28 has a beautiful warm purity.

The Lomax classic is also a great mouthpiece maybe in a M or MC
