Over the years I've gravitated to playing zinner blank mouthpieces. I
liked this Nova alot, I need to record a little and play a Bar Mitvah,
go through a few reeds and I'll be able to tell more. I don't know if
why I have liked zinners up to now is- the dimensions or if it's the
rubber but I've liked them more. Now I would think( I don't know for
sure) that when Clark put a facing and internal dimensions on
mouthpiece he is trying to end up with "his" Ideal dimensions. If
that is true, then his three models Debut, Nova and San Fran, should
play very similar. Now the expensive one probably gets more hand work
and is subject to "tighter" standards. So I ordered the 2 that I don't
have Debut and San fran and see what the differences are.
