OS2 just arrived. Thank you so much! At first blow, it gives me exactly what I asked for: a woody, tarogato-like tone with sweet low notes and assertive palm key notes, & enough resistance so I can shape the sound. And good golly Miss Molly, what dynamic range — from a whisper to a paint-peeling roar. Amazing volume. This mouthpiece wants to come out and play! Looking forward to bonding with my horn again. You really are as good as they say.
