My son, Max, used a Couf 4* S as his go to mpc though it squeaked occasionally and made certain notes difficult to play. He now plays a Couf artist 2 refaced by EZ with a .075 opening, and he hasn't had any squeaks or difficulty playing any notes.
I'm giving him a NOS Tone Edge refaced and opened by EZ to .090 with a softer reed tomorrow and see how that works out.
I have three mouthpieces, all hard rubber. The best for the TT - for me - is the Barone Jazz. I keep the Morgan for my Martin and the Ebolin in reserve.
Why the Barone? The two saxes have different diamater corks, so I have been forced to make a choice.The mellow sound of the Barone seems to go with the sax and works well for quartet and concert band. Other posters may (just possibly ) differ.
My true tone played perfectly in tune with the stock Buescher mouthpiece. I also enjoyed playing it with an old Selmer C* airflow (with the metal band) from the 30's. Definitely, not a modern sound with either of these pieces though.
