I'm inclined to agree - I play on a Gennusa, which is closed, and is also
a Chedeville revamp like the M13. My sound was notably darker when
switching to this mouthpiece from the medium open mouthpieces I had
previously experimented with.

My three yen: The M13 would be the only Bb mpiece I'd ever buy,
personally. *shrug* The others feel a little too limiting...especially
for their price...
