I use a Floyd Cooley Helleberg, which is similar to the 7B except for a "differently shaped backbore." The FC Helleb. is a great mouthpiece because you can get a lot of resonance--so the tone is better than on a regular 7B. Also, the volume can be greater than on the larger Conn Helle. I prefer the rim of the Schilke 66, but the resonance and tone is better with the FC Hell. The cost of the FC Helle. is more than $100. Bill.
