Welcome to the cafe

My son has a rented trevor James tenor sax from our local music hub which sounds nice.
Not sure how it compares to your current tenor though.
What are you studying in Scotland?

Best of luck

HI there and welcome! I just purchased a Yamaha 4c for my alto to replace a generic mouthpiece. I am very happy with the results. I consider myself to be at the beginner level. Looking forward to seeing your posts!

Welcome to the amazing forum that is The Caff!

What is it specifically you don't like about the Rico m/p?? Is it the Graftonite or the Metallite? What style of music do you play, generally?

Was just reading a seller's review of the graftonite mpc. There are three sound chamber styles; A for concert playing, B for what I would call all purpose, and C for Jazz. So for that brand, you seem to have the correct one for your playing preference. But have fun searching and let us know which one you've picked.

Otto Link Tone Edge or Super Tone Master are popular tenor mouthpieces for Jazz, PPT are excellent (I have the baritone version and it's boss!), Aizen make very good mouthpieces; their TSSL is based on the old otto link slant signature mouthpieces, whilst their TSSO is based on a Selmer Soloist (which in themselves seem to be quite good).

The best option for you is to take your sax to a shop and have an afternoon trying them out - take a friend/teacher and gauge their opinion.

Have fun down the rabbit hole!
