Here’s a recording of the same tune with the Selmer Short Barrel I wrote about in the previous post. It was a C* originally and opened up to a E or and F by a mouthpiece dude here in the Northwest named Bob Carpenter. I can’t remember what the tip opening is. This mouthpiece has zero resistance. Really easy to blow and great mobility. I notice the tone is even throughout the range. It can’t compete with a rhythm section in a live performance without a mic. This is the first time I’ve recorded it and to me it sounds super mellow. Altissimo is not so easy but the low notes come out like butter.
