I got the mouthpiece at the office this morning and it is perfect and plays great. The Alexander Superial #3 works really well with this piece and I love it. I am playing it with a Bonade ligature that helps to center the sound. I am figuring the altissimo on this piece and the mouthpiece is very comfortable. It is extremely powerful as well and I can see me having fun with it. Thanks for making great mouthpieces.
