The DG (1972?) I had came with the original King 29.  Fit perfectly and played well.  But it REALLY played well with an older 1.5G.  The fit was not perfect but close enough.  Great horns...

I've always found my DG plays better with larger mouthpieces. With me behind it the sound is far too hard and direct with a 11/2 or 2 size mouthpiece. I found the Ferguson L a great match for it.

The DG definitely has particular mouthpieces it doesn't like though. Older Schilkes with the long backbore work great. The newer short ones don't centre properly without a bit of tape round them. As already mentioned the Yeo feels very mismatched, and in general anything with a large throat doesn't work well.

my $.02.  Get with Doug on the shank.  Wicks USED to fit well, but they no longer do.  I played wicks on Duos, kings, benges and the like, but found that the proper fit is Doug's king shank. Roll with that.

Giaedinellii 1G just fits and worked great for me in all ranges. A little more work in the low range to get around but was good in upper register, which opens up opportunities for more types of gigs.
I actually had mine slightly bored out but it was pretty close to the 1G.
