The new Neilan mouthpiece from Warburton should be what you are looking for if it is in your budget - it is a a bigger, deeper cup helleberg style great for orchestral / large wind ensemble on a 5/4 piston. If you do solos / quintets, you may want a lighter / smaller mouthpiece also. I doubt I would ever attempt the Vaughan Williams concerto on my F tuba using that mouthpiece. There is more about that in a couple posts down. Just a suggestion, I make no money off of it. If you have a rotary, the c cup style PT88 is another alternative in deep mouthpieces. There will be many other great responses.
