I have played a 2155 and had no problem using a standard MP like the Helleberg.
The thing I love about the C-Helleberg MP is the tone it gives me. It makes my sound less "airy" with the funnel-like cup. The drawback is the thin rim with the sharp inside. That's the part between the rim and where the cup starts, that goes around your lips. The sharpness takes away some endurance and makes me get shot quicker. A much more rounded rim Miraphone(German) MP is easier on the lips, but makes the sound different.

Anyway, of all that rambling on at 1:30 AM, the MP's you mentioned should work fine.

Good Luck,
Jason Harrell
