So I got to be part of Doug Elliott's grand tour of the USA last week. He actually came to my house for a lesson, which I really appreciate.

As part of the lesson, I asked about improving my trigger register and he suggested that I go from my Schilke 53 to a 58 on my large bore tenor. I have a 58 that I have used for euphoniuming for a long time and have occasionally played it on trombone. It does help open up the low range, but I definitely lose focus above a high F (3rd space above the staff - not the really really high F). So I am wondering if something with a similar rim size but not quite so deep a cup would work for me. The Wick 1AL looks like it might fit the bill. I have never played a Wick mp. Can anyone tell me how it compares to the 58?

I have played both fairly extensively and find the 1AL plays darker than the Schilke 58. If I were to use either of them on tenor it would be the 58.

You might want to see if you can try one of the Joe Alessi mouthpieces.  Either Greg Black (which are now the "New York" models, I think) or Griego.  They have rims in the range of a Shilke 57 or 58 and a tenor cup.  I was quite surprised at how tenor-ish they sound.

For a slightly more economical alternative than the NY/Alessi series mentioned, maybe a Marcinkiewicz 3??
