 Close faced mouthpieces with a big sound
Author: DaphnisetChloe

I like the focus and evenness that is easily achievable on close faced mouthpieces however I have noticed that it is much harder to achieve the big, round forte sound that one can make easily on open facings - the closer tips tend to sound a little thinner and slightly forced in quality at forte and above. Are there mouthpieces/mouthpiece facings that lend themselves well to both areas? I understand of course that ultimately it is up to the skill of the player to produce great results, however a mouthpiece that can do both would be desirable!
