Does anybody have experience with these 2 mouthpieces, Mouthpiece Cafe Espresso and Aizen SO. They are both inspired by the Selmer Soloist.

I own the Aizen SO but in some conditions, I find the sound a little bit too thin. Does the Espresso sound fuller?

The Aizen is more a real copy of the Soloist.
The Aizen Solost has not to sound fat and beefy. It's designed to sound like a Soloist Short Shank.

The Espresso (contrarily to the Primo and the Slant Supreme) is more a mouthpiece inspired by the Soloist: it does not have the same chamber configuration nor the same baffle/floor slope (the baffle is very much like the baffle of the Slant Supreme).

It's better you experiment with reeds and embouchure, reminding a Soloist should be played with less air than a large chamber mouthpiece.
