 Mouthpiece Question
Author: Jim 
Date:   1999-08-19 13:26

I recently bought a Vandoren 5RV mouthpiece. This new
mouthpiece plays definitely in better tune than my old
one which had a tendency to drift way sharp. Also
the forte is much stronger than I could get with the
old one.

However the tone sounds just a little bit fuzzy, and lacks
the purity I can get with the old one. What does this mean?
1. I need a little harder reed (currently using ML-3).
2. There are imperfections in the mouthpiece.
3. I need to change my embrochure in some way.
4. The tone is actually fine and I shouln't worry
about it.
Obviously I don't expect comments on whether the tone
is good or not, but would like to hear any other thoughts.
