I currently have a rather large 5/4 horn that I am using for many types of playing. I am currently using a Conn Helleberg mouthpiece, but, I am looking for a bigger, deeper cup mouthpiece to help out in my orchestral playing. I know the basic lines, its what plays best for you, blah blah, but, I am looking for a general guiding point, suggestions to really start my search. I have a question though, in orchestral and a high quality college wind ensemble, how would this mouthpiece help me, and what disadvantages would it have also on my playing. The brutal truth would be most appreciated, thank you.
