I have never seen a 6/4 Nirschl BBb, but I have found that a Helleberg or Helleberg style mouthpiece works well on other BBb BATs I have played. If you haven't tried it yet, try out funnel shaped mouthpieces and try slightly smaller sizes then you may have been using. I find that a little smaller mouthpiece helps focus the sound on a very large tuba. Of course your mileage may vary.
