<<Do you know how to put this wax into the mouthpiece ?>>
Hi, Fanatic:
As for the sound, it's kind of like the sculptors say: they cut everything away from the item they are sculpting that is not the item. :-)
In other words, you keep playing until the sounds you don't like "go away," and the sound you want is left! I'm not being silly here; that's about the only way I can describe it. I guess it means if you are classically trained you might need to forget the rules they taught you.
As for the wax: I was taught to turn the mpc upside down and drip candle wax from a burning candle into the opening that the reed will go over. You make the wax build up on the inner top of the mpc, back where the angle begins to straighten up. I guess a person could use modeler's clay or wax instead and have more control.
I hope I've helped you a little.
Good luck!!!
Best regards,

Kalakos
