I'm looking for a bari mouthpiece that is bright, something like the guy in George Thorogood and the Destroyers uses. I want that raw power that's in your face. Any suggestions?

which guy with Thorogood, Hank Carter played tenor and alto. plays a SS Berg 95/1 on tenor, not sure on alto (only really used on the solo for BTTB).

Try a Rico Metalite, Berg, Dukoff, etc. Anything bright on tenor should be bright on bari.

Oh no, I gotta say, the metal berg 0 or 1 chamber is best, better than the quantum

dirty, did you switch from the metalite to the Runyon Custom Quantum? If so, why and which model is it on the Runyon page?

I have really enjoyed the M9 metalite. Tried two plastic Runyons about 4 years ago but had some issues with low A and getting mega volume in general. I sent it to Paul Coats and he fixed the low A siuation but the volume was still less than the metalite. Tried ordering the Berg to try it but WW&BW says it is not longer made in the 130/0.

MonchMan, what opening are you using?

saxo44,give Lamberson DD model a try.I own/have tried most bright bari pieces mentioned on this thread (except metal yanagisawa and ponzol rubber which have lower baffles than Lamberson DD) and,for me,Lamberson DD is a clear winner.Best projection and bright,yet warm sound.I use Lamb DDs on all horns except sop (yet).Check them out

Make sure you really have a spoiler. It's not considered cheating in those kinds of bands.

Jody Jazz ESP with the spoiler in really wails too.
OMG yes! That's what I use for Tower of Power-type horn section gigs. (and to be honest, big band jazz too, to make sure the horn gets HEARD!) The ESP with spoiler makes me sound kinda Ronnie Cuber-ish, which for Rock aint a bad thing.

Also, Runyon fans probably know that many JodyJazz pieces are based on Runyon designs. For example, based on a personal side-by-side visual inspection and playtest, the JJ classic soprano is THE SAME MOUTHPIECE as an older Runyon (hard rubber). This might explain why either would be a good choice to try.

RPC (custom) is the best baritone mouthpiece I've found for in your face. Bright? Yes but it's also probably the most versatile mouthpiece out there. hard to get, there's a two month waiting list usually.
