    My new Sheona White mouthpiece arrived today. When I looked at it, I was immediately struck by how much it resembles my Dennis Wick 2. The bore of the Sheona White is just a tad narrower than the Dennis Wick 2, and the inside or the rim is a bit sharper. Otherwise they seem very much alike. When I tried it I was fascinated to discover that it incorporates the best features of both the Dennis Wick 2 and the Bach A3 mouthpieces I’ve been playing. The Bach A3 always seemed to have a more centered (but brighter) tone, a better high range, and more precise control over movement between notes. Those were the reasons I had been playing it in preference to the Dennis Wick 2 on most occasions. The Dennis Wick 2, on the other hand, has a better Tenor Horn tone quality, better low range, and a more comfortable rim. The new Sheona White has the best qualities of both. It isn’t a compromise either. It plays very well, and just seems to avoid the other mouthpieces’ weaker points. I think the Sheona White mouthpiece will add a lot of pleasure to my playing.

    Can't wait to try one of these. Apparently it has a slightly enlarged hoop and a bit more of a fuzzy growler compared to the DW2?

    The Sheona White doesn't feel bigger than than the Dennis Wick 2, but the inside of the rim feels like it's set at a sharper angle. The tone seems warm and fuzzy, much like the DW 2. Remember, I only have the Dennis Wick 2, and the Bach 3A for comparison.
