Hi from England,

The Mead mouthpieces are indeed close to the Wicks available, but they do give a really different and correct Euph.sound, particularly as the Wicks are really Tbn.mouthpieces.
I play on an SM2, similar to the Wick 2AL but deeper and with a softer rim. The Throat is also bigger. This improves sound & volume but you lose a little projection and some notes can be a little under in pitch if not corrected slightly.

Best wishes, Charley.
