Small chamber tenor rollover piece?

2012 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  mfry
I got to thinking last night what the tenor V16 hr would play like with a small chamber. I like the small chamber on alto, wonder if that translates to tenor. What pieces have been produced in a rollover design and a small chamber in hard rubber for tenor? Curious, I couldn't think of any of the top of my head.

I remember reading somewhere that a small chamber doesn't work on tenor for reasons of acoustics.
A medium chamber (same size as the bore) is as small as they can go otherwise it messes things up.
A mouthpiece expert can probably explain why this is.
