To Owners, players who have tried one of these, or have heard of these Bari mpc!

What are your thoughts and feeling for these 'Brignola sound' Bari mpc?
I have search this forum but unable to find posts.

Sincerely thanks for those replies!

Dave Jary has just finished modifying a new "old stock" SparkleAire for me. It's an old-fashioned pickle-barrel type bari mouthpiece that he opened up first to .100, then to .113, and during the process added some baffle to give the piece more presence.

If this mouthpiece is any indication of what he does for the Brignola-style piece, then I definitely recommend his work. This SparkleAire blows easily with good control and intonation in all registers, and produces a powerful, fat sound that projects well at all dynamic levels. I've been practicing with it since yesterday and found it hard to put the horn down!

Dave's prices and turnaround time are very competitive. He made this almost unplayable SparkleAire into a great sounding piece...think of a HR Link but with lots of punch.

Jary Customs bari MPC "à la" Nick Brignola

Received 2 weeks ago such a MPC.
Of course, you'd need to be Nick Brignola to sound like Nick Brignola. Anyway, superb result, by far the best experienced in quite a few years of playing. Ideal balance between a warm yet precise sound, full-register good projection and excellent intonation. Superb workmanship and polishing; you can play it for hours without lip problem.
And, additional "plus", this MPC is a good help to solve the eternal problem of older Conns' high pich: with their long shank, the Jarys can be adjusted on the full length of the neck, thus avoiding the need of a neck extension (too late for me, it was done... I'm playing a 1926 New Wonder).

Thanks for your reply Jacques5646. I am looking for a mpc that offers a tighter focus sound concept on a Selmer Mk 6 Low A.
