Hey guys. I wanted to buy an RPC mouthpiece but I was wondering if anyone out there had any sound samples of them playing. I am looking for the tenor rpc but whatever you guys got. Even a link would be good. Thanks

RPC 120B on all the clips except "Comin' Home Baby." It 's a Tenney Jazzmaster 7* on that one:

One word of warning though. You can't really pick a mpc by listening to sound clips. Way too many other factors are involved, starting with the player, the recording method, your speakers, effects, and on and on. Also you can tell nothing about how the mpc feels or plays for you. The RPC is a great mpc, but your best bet is to call Ron Cuelho and discuss with him what you are looking for (he makes a variety). He'll be able to deliver something that will likely work very well for you.

Big difference between Ron's closed/rollover and open/baffle 'pieces. Do you have an objective or are you just buying the name?

+1 to give Ron a call. He loves to chat while he works and knows his pieces better than anyone. Tell him what you play, your level of ability, and your objectives/desires and let him help you make the selection.

Sorry to hijack, but you are sounding LARGE on those recordings, JL... nice. Are these with your VI or your Buescher?

P.S. Grumps, you are getting a great sound too - but you already said what horn you were on.... :)

Thanks SactoPete & Grumps. That's the MKVI. Much as I like the Buescher (it's a least as big a sound and probably wouldn't sound much different on a recording); there's just something about the feel and 'feedback'/response of the VI....

Hey Grumps, I've been to your website before. Great sound, both on the tenor and alto!

Zeekman, Pete Thomas has some wonderful recordings of him playing an RPC, although recently I think he's been using his own model, a PPT (another mpc to consider). Still, keep in mind what I said about recordings. And also as Dr G said, you need to come up with a general sound concept that you're after. Tell Ron and see where that goes.
