I've played the various Guardala models and have settled on the King because of its rich tone and easy subtones, which is suited to my style of playing.

Recently I'm learning to discover about vintage SS Bergs.
I like the gutsy Dukoff-y D chamber sound, but with more balls and more power.
They can sound more focused and intense than a Guardala.

Has anyone had experience in AB-ing these 2 great mouthpieces?
I won't say that one is better than the other.
To me they belong to the same family but with subtle differences in tone color and texture.

I've tried the handmade ones...Studio... Brecker 1 and 2... King ... Super King... Crescent.
This was from the early 90s till now.
How I wish I could keep them all.
They were the rage when I was a teenage Guardala wannabe.
I still am mystified by them.
I'm sorry if I offend some people but to me, Dave Guardala and Jeff Powell set the standard for all other modern mpc
makers.
I don't give a **** about their personal lives.
To me, these 2 guys were the pioneers.

The LT ones are great too but I don't like their slightly higher beak angles.
