Hi Joe, Well…. I’m speechless. The mouthpiece really sings and it has the sound I like, the articulation remains excellent even with the changes you made on the lay and the baffle. The piece does everything I want, so this is a real tool for a musician. It is very sensitive to reed and ligature (in a good way), so the variations on sound are endless, but it always keeps the easy response from top to bottom. I like your approach, we are part of the realization and you give what you promise.
