I recently purchased a YAS-82Z and I've been playing on a HR Meyer 7M, but I find it hard to produce notes with ease on all registers... I've been told that switching to a mouthpiece with a smaller facing will help clear this up. Is this true? If so, what kind of facing should I be looking for?

Thanks for the help!
If the problems started or got worse with the new horn, then I'd get it checked for leaks (or do it yourself with a rope light from your local hardware store). If it was not "set up" by a tech, it may simply be a bit out of adjustment from shipping.

Also, it would be useful to know which notes have problems and what the problems are. From the other answers, I think most of us are assuming the problem is with low notes, which often means leaks (and they can be in any pad on the horn).
