    When i play Bb bass i always use a perantucci PT88+ Beast of a mouthpeice! Round the same rim size as a DW 1XL or 1L beast of a mouthpiece! Easy to get pedals on aswell!

    increase practice and fitness, and (if necessary) lose some weight, before spending money on a new mouthpiece. weight around your tummy prevents you from breathing correctly, and playing, particularly at the extremes of the range depends on good efficient breath control. It might also be a good idea to spend some time (and maybe the equivalent amount of money for a G&W or LM3 mouthpiece) on some maintenance for your tuba
