Get a Denis Wick no.2 straight away. Don't start on a smaller one with the intention of moving up later. Start the way you mean to go on with a DW2. I've been playing on one for 23 years and wouldn't even consider anything else.
Well, having said all that, played a no.2 for ever and read everyone else's comments on the subject, I've just bought myself a no.3!! I was starting to panic about Tristan and feel that shifting down a size may do the trick - even if it is 90% psychological.Accidental said:I'm on a DW2 as well - its flipping hard work to get the upper register, but worth it in the end!
Cantonian said:It is an indictment of the industry and perhaps the attitude to the tenor horn that the only real choice of mouthpiece is Denis Wick 2,3, or 5.
