All,

My band director's father is a bass trombonist of many years and he happened to be making a visit to my school last week, he brought a Pre Prana BT 2 with him for me to try.  I spend a little time on it in a free period of mine and spoke with him quite a bit about gear and what not; at the end of the conversation he simply told me to keep the mouthpiece!  :-0  I have been using it some the last week yet haven't really spent a ton of time on it (lots of tenor playing required lately).  I wanted to share my first impressions though.

I used it first in a Wind Ensemble and found that it played brighter than the G&W Chinook I usually use in that group.  It was easier to get a bigger sound on (part of this was due to the smaller size of course) yet it did feel noticeably easier to play.  To my surprise, the rim which is thin in comparison to previous preferences, was extremely comfortable and did not feel "sharp" like the Giddings sometimes does.  The comments I received from my director were that it blended better than I usually do...this was a shock based off of what I have read in this thread and elsewhere.  He described the sound as more present and somewhat bigger yet without sticking out or overpowering the section (which happens from time to time).  I personally felt as if it didn't project as much as it should have but I got different opinions from those on the other side of the bell.

I also played bass on the third set of a 3 set big band gig over the weekend (I usually play 2nd).  It was mostly dance oriented big band classics: Ain't That a Kick, Moon River, Sylvia, Lady is Tramp, How High the Moon, etc.  Once again I didn't feel like my sound was projecting enough but the bari player in front of me, a good friend who knows what I usually sound like, told me that it was a little much.  I adjusted and just focused on playing with the same air and sound concept as usual and this time I was thanked by the bari player.  I still didn't feel quite as comfortable on my end of the bell, but everyone seemed to like the results once appropriate adjustments were made. 

As usual a new mouthpiece can fix everything for 2 weeks so I will chime in with some long term results.  I will be playing only tenor for the next 3-4 weeks as I will be out of town for tenor requirements.  Hopefully I can revive this thread when I put some real time in on the piece.  I am happy with it so far, (maybe cause the price was right), and I am seriously considering looking into the BT 1 I was originally interested in at the beginning of this thread.  Thank you for all the previous input, it really has demonstrated that everyone's different in their taste.  Would love to hear some more comments, especially if you have had the same first impression.

BTW, everyone should wish a happy birthday to Miles.   :D

Cheers,
Leo

All,

Once again thank you for all the replies and advice.  I was not saying everyone was void of reasoning in my earlier post; just hoping to hear more.  I found one to try next week and will post opinions here afterward.

Cheers,
Leo

All,

To begin with I appreciate all of your replies.  I was hoping this wasn't going to turn into another typical Monette thread, i.e. a thread to tell one that they are overrated and not worth the money with little reason as to why.  If you have a complaint can you tell me why specifically it was too much money?  To further this though, maybe I could have been more specific as to what I wanted to know.  I currently use a Rath 1.5 W or 1.25 W for commercial and jazz type playing. The wider rim is comfortable for me in this type of playing and I love the sound.  I am looking for a bigger piece that gives a darker and thicker sound yet still retains a comfortable shape. I have been Using A Giddings and Webster Chinook for this, the sound is great but is uncomfortable to play.  Back to the Monette, this is NOT a 300 dollar mouthpiece and I am looking at a PRE Prana which can't be bought new.  Can anyone give their opinion about playing a Monette that exclusively pertains to pre prana pieces?  Finally, I do not need a lecture that explains I'm the biggest variable in sounding good, take my word for it, I know.  I am putting in the time, I'm just looking for the right tool for a specific need.  Thanks again guys!

I am looking at a Pre Prana Monette BT-1 bass bone piece right now.  I was hoping someone could offer any insight as to the differences between this and the newer prana pieces.  I have heard from a friend that own lots of Monette trumpet gear that the pre prana pieces are more conventional and can be played by a wider variety of players.  If anyone knows spec differences or has played both I would appreciate the input.

Thanks,
Leo

Looking to move these.  Price Reductions for multiple pieces bought; e.g. 2 mouthpieces knock off $10, 3 mouthpieces knock off $20......
If you want to pick out a lot, a better bulk deal can be made.  This would be a great way to test the water on some different sizes and designs.
