Well I'm looking for a mouthpiece on tenor obviously. Any suggestions..i'm not looking for a 4 million dollar Jody jazz piece lol so thats most def. out. So yeah I'm looking for more a possibly gordon goodwin type sound. Nothing too dark and oldschoolish. Ideas plz?

It is hard to define what you are looking for from that thread.

On Tenor start with a Hite, 2-2 1/2 reed. It is dynamic and flexible. Intonation is perfect.
Once you define your color of sound from that, think brighter or rounder unless you discover the Hite is workable for your needs.

Brighter would be Bergs
rounder would be Links, and Morgans......

That is the best I can do from parameters given.

Well, Gordon Goodwin plays a metal Otto Link. That or any other medium chambered mouthpiece without a high baffle will get you in the ball park.
