I notice with a bunch of pieces I've played that there is an overwhelming abundance of, for lack of a better term, wet "throaty" high-mids. Maybe it's me unconsciously compensating having been used to playing drier pieces.
I noticed it in my Dukoff M6, TW Durga 2.
Is it caused by high baffle? Smaller chamber? Something to expect with brighter mouthpieces?

My guess is more focus due to smaller chamber. I've been playing an assortment of Otto Links for a long time, but now play a John Thomas hr mpc. It has a squeeze to the chamber that the Links don't, & the sound is wetter in general & denser & fuller in the palm keys.

Maybe post a video or audio clip of what you would describe as a "throaty" tonality?
