 How do you read mouthpiece facing charts?
Author: Kontragirl

Can anyone tell me how to read those mouthpiece facing charts? I am looking for a new mouthpiece for my soprano. I know that the numbers mean a thousandth of an inch, but would I want a closed mouthpiece, or a more open mouthpiece. Right now I am playing on a Hite mouthpiece and Rico (I hear you groaning, but I like Ricos) 3 reeds. I have been told that the Vandoren B45 is a good mouthpiece, and I'm sure it is, but would it fit my needs? Thank you!
