Subj: Jazz Mouthpiece
Date: Tue, 30 Jan 1996 11:59:49 -0500
With all the mouthpieces I have acquired and sampled I never
thought I would ask this but:
I play Tenor Sax in a jazz group at work. I need to practise
but have limited time so I use that time for my clarinet. I
can play the jazz repertoire much easier on my clarinet.
(See what practise does) However I can't be heard over all
those saxophones so I thought I would look for a mouthpiece
for use in this group. My top 5 requirements are.
5. Intonation (I am playing with saxophones)
I have tried a Hite which is louder than my others and plays
almost any reed. I also have a VanDoren 5JB but I don't
currently have any reeds soft enough for it. Please send any
reccomendations, I would really rather play clarinet instead
of practising Sax.
