So i'm in the market for a new bari MPC and i've narrowed it down between a C* and a C**. I don't know too much about how tip openings affect the sound or tone of the bari but I need some help. What are some stuff you like about the C* or C**?

Very minute difference. If you can't try before you buy, go by price and condition. A C* will be more common and you may pick one up on ebay for about $75. I got an S-90 for my bari for about that amount.

I have measured (and refaced) 6 Selmer C * Alto mpc´s for the past months, one of them had an "C-opening" two had an opening similar to a "C **".
What to do? On a baritone I would have chosen C**, D (or E). But testing and/or measure them before buying.
