Subj: Stirring up a hornets nest...mouthpieces.

Due to certain unavoidable circumstances (like my poor RV5 mouthpiece
having a BAD encounter with a hardwood floor) I am in the hunt for a
mouthpiece. In terms of sound, I am looking for something with which
I can get a real 'blood and guts' sound. I have heard that a
Giglotti mp w/ the 'p' facing was good, but I'd like to get some more
ideas in the <$100 range (college students are NOT rich). I am using
a regular Rovner ligature if that helps.
Thanks in advance,
Jeremy A Yager
