What you may want to do is order an array of mouthpieces and try them
out. I know that some companies will ship you all the mouthpieces and
will give you time to test them all out. All you have to do is choose the
one(s) you like best, send the rest back, and pay the restock fee. Which
from what I recall from being told is not very much.
I really liked the Gennusa GE and the Clark Fobes mouthpieces. I'm in the
process of ordering both, and hopefully I'll be able to put in an order
for the Fobes pro mpc. Again, it's really all personal choice.
And the best thing about the Fobes mouthpieces is that they'll run about
half as much as the Vandorens. Heck, you can get two of them for the
price of a Vandoren mpc!!! Don't let the price fool you, either. They're
good quality mouthpieces. Very good quality.
Good luck in your mouthpiece hunt.
