(alto #6) seems to make my overall tone less bright, and make me play more in tune (don't have to push my mouthpiece all the way in like I did with my old #5). perhaps playing in the high register is a little more stable too.

anyone have any comments? is this just an individual thing? or have others experienced this phenomenon?

thanks, sotw members!

Be careful.

I don't know how experienced you are, so excuse me if I'm wrong.
Maybe a less bright sound with a higher pitch in a more open mouthpiece could mean that you are less relaxed and biting more.

It is individual,but as your embouchure matures you should be able to open up to what suits you best, you are finding this is the case, i would think.
