I'm trying to sort out 'the' mouthpiece for my lovely new TJ raw tenor and have hit on something that I've never really experienced before. Now- to date I've been dedicated to Berg Larsens with occasional dalliances with PPTs, Jody Jazz and Runyons. The hands down winner on my new tenor is an Otto Link- tweaked by Morgan Fry (floridated, in his words)- blows a storm, great intonation, good scream potential, full but enough cut to work with some of my shockingly loud bands... basically it ticks all the boxes. However -the profile in my mouth is noticeably different from what i'm used to and I'm finding it gives me embouchure ache after about half an hour. Anyone else familiar with this as an issue? I'm guessing that, if I work through it, my gob will get used to the new piece (?... then will Bergs hurt?)... any comments appreciated....... frustrated of Brighton
