Sure you can. But there is some risk involved in the results. I would recommend you get WW&BW to send you a Selmer D, E, and F on trial to see if any of them seem right. Problem is, Selmer tip openings vary some. I have a C* on sop that measures as a D. So if they do not have these three sizes, pick any 3 in the same ballpark. Even 3 Es.I realy don't know if you can say to a refacer (it would be good if one of the many whom contribute to this forum would answer here) this is a mouthpiece which works on a 3,5 rico reed , open it up and make it feel good with a 2,5 reed (or any other size for that matter! )
that is exactly was I was trying to tell our friend toasty in perhaps too many words......essentially you agree the best thing to do is to stay with the stock mouthpiece in a larger opening variant as the best and safest option.....MojoBari said:Sure you can.

How open, and how much would it cost.brianpowell said:My personal soprano piece is a Selmer S80 that I have opened up to a comfortable "jazz" opening. I love Selmer rubber, and these have a great tone. Opening them up will accentuate that little classic Selmer "bump" baffle right behind the tip rail, and it projects like crazy while keeping a fine core. I wouldn't play a Super Session without enlarging the chamber, too resistant for me, but I've done several that have turned out killer players. Did I mention I love Selmer rubber? S80s will make very cool jazz pieces.
