Hey Stewart,
I always had success with a Conn-Helleberg on my BBb's. Since you're playing on a C4 type mouthpiece, you might like the sharp rim and funnel cup that's characteristic of the Conn-Helleberg. The PT's on the other hand might not feel good to you, I believe you'll find that most of them have wider cups than the C4's. I'm not familiar with all 60 or 70 models they have, so there may be a narrower cup... not sure.

Maybe you should try a Schilke Helleberg! (or Schilke Helleberg II) Maybe that would be less of a drastic change than a Perantucci. Woodwind and Brasswind probably carry those and would let you try them out for a week or two.

Just keep lookin'!
