You say you have played on a 6.5AL, a 5G and a DW4AL. Have you thought of trying the DW 9BL. It is around the 6.5 rim size with a shallow cup and has been marketed as an " emergency high note getter" Amazed

I have not tried that, might be useful.

Trying to bolster notes upwards of a high F  8^


For me the mouthpiece does not augment those notes.  It may make them a bit easier to play (a shallower cup) but mostly different mouthpieces give me different timber to the sound.  If your not getting a full sound then you not getting enough airflow or you're pinched off somewhere.  I don't know what Doug Elliot charges for a Skype lesson, but he's an expert in embouchure/mouth piece issues.  It may very well be cheaper than buying a dozen mouthpieces to run trial and error.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?
