 RE: wooden mouthpieces

The problem with wood mouthpieces is that the interiors are more fluctuant with temperature and humidity. One day a wood mouthpiece will play gret, another day, it may be stuffy, or it may be bright.. etc.. rather unpredictable. And due to the moisture and temperature change while playing, they even change over the course of a performance. Of course, it also depends on the wood. Some woods change easier than others.
I believe Greg Smith doctors his wood mouthpieces to prevent such changes. But, i still think they change much more over a shorter period of time compared to hard rubber.
