Bach 8 mouthpiece questions

<t>The 8 is identical to a 7 except it does have a wider, flatter rim. The 8 1/2 BW is even wider. I bought an 8 many years ago because I thought it might help with teeth that aren't real straight. It's my favorite mouthpiece for a medium bore trombone. Dark but lots of overtones. Probably not a jaz...
