I'm a tenor player who has been trying to find a sound on alto for three years now. I've been using mainly Meyer pieces. I went to look at a Conn 26M and was pleasantly surprised by the soloist D piece that came with it, this is an old short shank model. I think an E would suit me better but Hey this is putting me on my way. Any other pieces in this vein I should know about? I may have to buy the sax to get mouthpiece!!

I plan too. I see Selmer have re-issued them I wonder what the new ones are like. Not overly pricey either not like some of their other products !!!

Decided on the Expresso from Mouthpiece Cafe. The Conn 26M is a relacquer and whilst it has an edge tonewise on my Yanigasawa 880 the keywork, particualary now I'm starting to get altissimo does present problems.

Well received my piece from Mouthpiece Cafe and am very pleased. I could recommend any-one thinking of getting a piece from any of the makers on the forum of their versions of the older pieces without the 'antique, collectable prices'. Well worth it in my opinion. Leave the old Meyers,Selmers,Guardallas to the collectors. Players get a new makeover on an old design. In my case the subtle improvements on an old proven design really add to my playing experience.
