Hi all, seeking some suggestions/input. Anyone out there
use or familiar with the Rose Orchestra (Mirafone) mouthpieces?
I have been using the orchestra for about 10 years with a couple
different euro horns (a 184 and a big-bore cerveny/ziess) and for
the past year with my "Rusk/Marzan/Bohm&Meinl/York." When I played
pini a couple months ago I was so light-headed from working the horn
that I decided to purchase a big 6/4 Holton CC c.1971. No reservations
here at all, but anyone have inputs on mouthpiece selections
appropriate for use on both horns? I have never been a multiple-m-piece
kind of guy. Any tips on who could/would/might send several different
to play-test? I have no real interest in the sharper-rim types, but
I haven't looked at mouthpieces in 10 years and have a distinct impression
that there are fresh and (perhaps) more appropriate ones to fit my needs.

comments? Thanks in advance for inputs
