Well………….. I got to say I’m blown away by this 868! I’ve been playing it all weekend. It’s such a difference from my JJ; much bigger mouthpiece, much easier to blow. And DARK, but still crisp. It really belongs with my old Conn; I think it will be there forever! I honestly can’t think of anything to re-adjust or tweak (I kind of thought this would be the first round). Playing is 1000% easier and the tone……………….really big and beautiful. Fantastic mouthpiece. Thanks so much Joe, I may even be back for another one of yours! Stay happy and healthy.
