 Re: Effect of Facing Length on a Mouthpiece

Any good facing should do all that a good mouthpiece needs - play loud, soft, high, low, and articulate well. The facing length is more about feel. There is always a 'sweet spot' in a facing that makes it play the best. A long facing necessitates more mouthpiece inside the mouth and shorter, less. More open facing necessitates more jaw distance to get the reed playing property etc. Also, these differences might affect sound, tuning, color a little, but the insides of a mouthpiece affect those elements more than the facing.
