Looking for thoughts/opinions on this mouthpiece. I know Vytas is very well known for his clarinet mouthpieces, but I'm curious if anyone has (or has previously played) on one of these:

Very reasonably priced and it looks beautiful, but I'm always hesitant to pull the trigger on something (even in the $200 range) that has no trial period or returns.

Thanks!

Hey John, yes I have. I had one come in used and liked it a lot. I had a professional player in the army band test about 6 or 7 good alto pieces and this was the clear winner for him. One year later he's still playing it very happily. I can't tell you much more but it was in the Meyer vein with more going on than a stock Meyer or V16.

Jim, thank you! That's good to know! I'm very happy with my primary alto 'piece right now (Kessler NY Meyer copy), but this does look VERY intriguing!

Hope all's well on the South Shore!

John
