Re: Bach LT16M tuning quirks

I have a 16M and have play others too and have had no problem with tuning in the upper range. A Bach 3 is (IMO)
way too big a mouthpiece for a horn tat size. I bet that is what`s giving you the issue

The trigger range is bigger and fatter. It sounds and feels like the open horn. I highly recommend it. They are a...

Re: Source for .508/.509 leadpipes?

I`ve had an H8 leadpipe in my 16MG for probably 10 years and love it. It opened the upper range up quite a bit and just made it a better slotting horn. I tried an Edwards #2 for a while in the 16MG and didn`t like. I have one in mu 36 and it really works there.

A Giardinelli 4D is their answer to the 6 1/2AL
