Well right now it's a Greg Black 1 1/8G .312 #2. With that said I have played just about everything. For many years was only playing 60 size or bigger but several years ago went slightly smaller for a more focused sound and a bit easier to control. When I play small tenor I use a 6 1/2AL that I've had since dirt was invented. For large tenor and Euphonium I have a 1 1/2G that dates from right after they moved to Elkhart.

I have to say that I thought I wouldn't move for a long time until an old acquaintance (who plays euphonium) said that he'd trialled Kurun & Gilbert and had switched. They have some nice 'in-between' sizes, so for large bore tenor I play 5.5 C. Medium rim, gold plated, intones beautifully across the range. Love it.

Hi to you all,
I used to use Josef Klier Exclusive mpcs when I was at the university.
But last couple of years, I've been using Doug Elliot mpcs, which I think fits for me and also soundwise of course. I play tested lots of different mpcs in the last decade and compared with the DE system was the winner everytime I played. Cheers Doug.

My favorite is an old Mt Vernon 1 1/2g. I think I have about 30 mouthpieces. Time to sell some of them. They just collect dust. The Mt Vernon has grown in to my face.

I played on Denis Wicks for a hot minute, too top heavy for me, but I know plenty of people who like them. I use a Warburton RS5, which is their artist model mouthpiece for Rick Stout, 5G rim with a deeper than average cup on my large bores. Recently got a gold plated King M31 that I'm in love with for jazzing.

All that being said, I switched to a dual-bore .525-.547 slide on my daily driver, and now I'm falling in love with this Marcinkiewicz 8H-6 1/2AL (small shank) for solo work.

The AR Alan Kaplan S piece is a good 25% better than any other piece I've tried, for my needs.
