 Re: M13L VS BD5

The M13Lyre plays wonders if you don't think about biting but think about pushing in the sides of your mouth. It'll give you a rounder and freer sound which I think you're looking for.

Random question: I see many mouthpiece makers like Fobes and Behn make pretty closed mouthpieces around 1.00 to 1.05.

However, I also see people playing B40s with 1.20s and it's also fairly common.

I can see plenty of advantages of playing a closed mouthpieces but why are so many people playing these really open mouthpieces? I"m guessing they bit when they play to close the mouthpiece? If so, why not just get a closer mouthpiece?
