I just bought an s-6, what sort of mp is the most suitable for my kind of music? I play in a church, mostly christian songs (don moen, hillsongs, etc) I wanna sound more like dave koz or kenny g.

I know kenny is using dukoff but I want to hear other suggestion as well.

Okay maybe I want 2, one it needs to be a bit bright but warm. And 2nd one is smooth mellow and dark.

yea Beechler is the best have a thicker sound than DUkoff.

but you have to work with the mpc to get that kind of sound, last time before I sold my S-6, I can get that sound from a Vandoren V25, however it is a bit close for me...

do you want to sell you S6?

If you like a nice warm tone,use a simple Selmer S 80,, I use E and D,also have a C * for more classic result! I have been on HR Selmer since I began playing soprano,have tried a few,but always come back to HR Selmer on sop.Dukoff will very mostly bright and edgy,I think!On soprano,having a thin clear sound as Dukoff,personally I can't stand!Just my opinion!
All the best,
Saxobari

Yani metal - a little fuller than a Dukoff but has the smooth jazz sound.

Runyon Custom w/ spoiler - or not. It is not the "most suitable", but it is the cheapest.

Beechler Bellite. I just got one and it plays and sounds great.

EDIT: I thought this was the alto mp forum. I bought the Belite for alto.

On soprano, I have a JodyJazz DV7* but actually I've been using a Morgan Vintage lately.

I still say try A Jody Jazz DV if it's within your budget.

First of all,
Write down a list of mouthpeices suggested here and go to the nearest Music store to try them out.

That's the only way to know for sure.

If you're trying to save money, try out the Rico Royal Graftonite mouthpieces and see what you think.

I have ordered a yani metal. Hope it turns out ok.
Thanks for all of your suggestion guys.

That Jody Jazz is quite tempting actually, I wonder why it is so expensive, is it that exceptional? I mean yani cost $169 and the jody dv cost $459 thats more than double the price. I know its gold plated but would that make it that expensive?
