Playing alto 2 1/2 years
It sounds a little different in solo with no effects, but not much. The difference is physical, and assuming I can get( the air up to the task, there will be a difference in my sound and playing, even if I go back to the older piece that's a little less open. Incidentally, this is a different mic than the one I use for audio recordings.It sounds great Randy, but honestly not much different to your regular mouthpiece/sound. I always think that comfort and playability trumps any small changes in tone.
