I have noticed some degradation in response with a heavyweight mouthpiece but that amount was barely noticable. It certainly wasn't enough to dissuade me from using the mouthpiece. The recent thread on this BBS about a heavyweight version of the Arnold Jacobs/Canadian Brass mouthpiece, made by a third party, gives me hope that someone will eventually make a better version of the heavyweight Bach mouthpieces which I am so fond of. I have asked Roger Lewis numerous times if R&S would take up the task but things don't seem to be happening so maybe looking elsewhere is the ticket. Hopefully, whoever does it won't be inclined to charge over $150 each for a silver plated mouthpiece as I think such prices to be exorbitant. Roger, if you're reading this, it is not too late to step into this pile of roses...
