Tenor horn mouthpiece suggestions.

  1. Can anyone help?

    I've been blowing my horn for over 15 years now and have always played on a Dennis Wick 2. This has been a good servent but I'm getting frustrated with the difficulties I have reaching the upper register. I've tried the Dennis Wick 3 but hate the lack of depth of sound.

    I've read about the possible Bach 3 but need some other suggestions. It's not that I don't practice, honest!!

    tenor horn mouthpiece

    I play on a Besson 16 it was recommended to me by a very good horn player advising that it would help me reach the upper register. I have also played on a bach mouthpiece but stuggled with clarity of sound.

    The besson mouthpiece used to come as a package when you bought a new sovereign but not sure if it still does.

    You can pick them up second hand as well, have a look around
