I just got a Vandoren V16 mouthpiece for my new Yamaha soprano. The bore seems too open because it just slides right down the cork and it rotates around while I try to play it. I also have a Morgan Vintage that is the same way. I tried the piece on my curved neck since the cork is untouched but it was only slightly better. Did someone say I should use teflon tape? Seems like kind of a mess. Should I really get a brand new horn recorked just to try a new mouthpiece? What about when I want to use my DV again which will compress the cork back down again?
