that was the problem I had with mine- just too big, especially if I was feeling out of shape.I sold mine because the tip was just too big for me to feel comfortable on all the time. When I got comfortable on it that piece smoked though. Getting another one with a smaller tip is still on my wish list.
I wonder why? That is unusual when most of the saxophone universe gravitates towards 7* tip's. His do have that unique baffle. He suggested a .113 for me and I think he might be right. With that baffle I think that tip would be perfect.yeah, mark makes pretty much what ever you want. he just reccomends about an 8* to 9*
I can't figure out if this is a positive post or negative.......are you saying Mark helped you out or no?I remember when I went shopping for my first tenor mouthpiece - Mark was working at Brisbane Brass and woodwind, where I work now, as well as teaching at the conservatorium here (unfortunately I wasn't a student of his). At the time I had just bought a busted up '67 conn that needed an overhaul, prior to this I just owned a selmer series III alto with a C* and I played size 3.5 reeds. Mark handed me a hand full of mouthpieces including, a florida link opened up to .115, a mark spencer which was .125 a brand new 8* link, some ponzols etc. In the end I walked out with the 8* link, he never gave me anything smaller than an 8* - and in short he sort of said "Oh you don't want to play anything smaller than this thing!" To be honest I barely picked up my tenor that year, it took me 2 years to really figure out how to play that link. But yeah Mark has always said that about mouthpieces.
It's just a story saying he really thought big mouthpieces were the way to go.I can't figure out if this is a positive post or negative.......are you saying Mark helped you out or no?
