    I am playing on a Yanaha 16E cornet mouthpiece which suits my playing really well. The problem is that this is not my own mouthpiece so I will need to return it at some point. I am wondering whether to get a standard 16E mouthpiece or get one of the GP series moutpieces (16EGP).

    Has anybody had any experience with the GP moutpieces? If so how do they compare to the standard mouthpieces?

    Andy, how does the cup depth compare to the Wicks (not the b cups) ?

    I have a spare 16E that you can have for the price of a pint, if you're interested. PM me.

    Not really sure as I have not played on a DW 2 which is supposed to be similar to a 16E. I have played on a DW 4 and that feels like it has a deeper cup.

    The 16E has got a deep cup and I have no problems with the lower register on it.
