Thanks for your comments! If I had labeled them from the start all the votes had gone to the link so this is more fun. I will reveal the answer later.Man, I really liked the 2nd clip. The first one is more spread and the 2nd seemed more focused with a brighter ring to the sound. Just seemed like it had more of a clarity and presence to me. All seemed more alive and energetic. Did you label which one was which I didn't see that anywhere........
My RS Berkeley CP is pretty dark so I assumed it was the first one but I don't know now as maybe the Link is really dark. I think you sound way more comfortable on mouthpiece 2 so that would make me think that is the CP piece as you have been playing it for awhile..........Thanks for your comments!

Thanks, the reed has been played mostly on mpc 1 so there is no issue with the reed.the first recording sounds like a bad reed day to me. hard to tell whether you don't have as much control of it because the reed is not a good match for this piece or because you were not as used to it, or because this mouthpiece has a facing issue. the second recording does indeed sound like a Wow! clean and focused.
is the reed is the same between the two recordings? and was it a fresh reed out of the box or has it been played for a while on one of the mouthpieces (#2?) before this comparison?
Good to know. Thanks. I haven't tried D'Addario reeds in a long time, I didn't realize they had a 3H reed. I thought they were just one size per number 2.5,3,3.5, etc......I think I'll order a box........Thanks for listening and commenting. It's always interesting to hear your thoughts. The answer is:
Mpc 1 Otto Link
Mpc 2 RS Berkeley
