Most of my younger students are using Clark Fobes' student mouthpiece
with great results. They are easy to play, priced very reasonably,
very consistant, and emit
much more pleasing sounds than others I've tried (Yamaha, B45, Rico,
Portnoy, etc.). Clark is a frequent
contributer to this list; I'm not sure what the appropriate etiquete
(sorry, spellcheck isn't working) is in terms of posting other people's
phone #, so to be safe, perhaps you could Email him if you are
