I'm pleased for you!

When I started on tenor I played on a 6 mouthpiece (Java T55), and have gone up to an 8. What Paul says is useful, about starting lower - 7/7* is quite common. I play a 6 on Soprano, 7 on Alto, 8 on Tenor. A Yami 4C is about a 3 on Tenor - 0.067".

Kind regards
Tom

Thanks Tom.

I'm on the look out for a 6, 6* I think, to start with. Yes I can tell the Yam is very small, that's a good indication I need to get a larger tip ASAP..

Then I think the #2 reed may be OK.. certainly no problem playing the whole range yesterday...

First time out for the Tenor tonight, 'cos my Alto's being serviced, new pieces and new experience but I did OK. Very enjoyable rehearsal..:welldone
