He used to play crystal, and I believe is now playing on a prototype
Vandoren M30 mouthpiece. It is in the M13 family of mouthpieces. He
played the Nielsen Concerto in Jackson TN in January and sounded
wonderful.

I noticed that Jon Manasse plays on a crystal mouthpiece and has a
wonderful
sound (to me, at least). Anyone have any reason why to avoid using a
crystal mouthpiece (besides breakage). I had used a crystal mouthpiece
for
about 6 months in highschool and really thought that the sound was more
even
from note to note than my 2RV and B45 at the time. I also thought that
it
lacked projection in comparison as well. I would certainly appreciate
your
views on the crystal mouthpieces and experiences.

And for you pedantic souls, I know that they are not really made of
crystal.
Now that that is out of the way, I would love to hear other relevant
views.
Also, which ones would you recommend?

Robert
