I'm looking for a new mouthpiece, something that I can stick with for a while. I play in a jazz/blues rock band and want something that's nice and bright to cut through guitar and drums but still fat, free blowing, and great altissimo for the little free jazz freakouts we get into from time to time. I'm looking at a first gen Durga or a Jody Jazz Super jet as I can get them each for around $400. I currently play a Level-Air 5 which I have thought about having opened up, but it just doesn't have as much power behind it and altissimo is hit and miss. Any huge differences to consider between these pieces? I believe the Durga is maybe not quite as bright as the super jet, but that may be a good thing. Any other sleepers out there that would blow these 2 out of the water? I'd consider a sugal NB II as well, but they're a little above my price range. Thanks for the advice!
