I don't really have a favourite brand. However, I do have a favourite type - cushion rim! Anyone who makes a nice kindly mouthpiece which stops my scar becoming worse gets my vote. Which is why I voted for Bach.
RHM, have you tried a Rudy Muck?
I used to use one as a tester mpc at work.  It was comfy!

After much experimentation, Doug's mouthpieces have really clicked with me, both tenor and bass.

They are comfy but I can't articulate with them.  They are very comfy.

I use Hammonds in pretty much everything... Great pieces.
But I have to say, looking at these results, Congrats Doug! It's good to see a small maker with a huge consumer base like that.

I especially like the 6 1/2 AL.  It's so comfy!  It works great with my Bach 36.  I have to watch it with my King 3B though, as it can lead to overblow/blattiness.  I'm thinking of ditching the King 3B in favor of the Bach 36 for the sole reason that it works better with my favorite mouthpiece.

I originally voted for Greg Black, because I played a few times on my teacher's 5G-4G and absolutely loved it. Since I double on euphonium, he recommended trying out a Doug Elliott mouthpiece. It works amazingly for me, by far my favorite mouthpiece I've ever played on.

The Rath mouthpieces gets my vote but I didn't see it so I voted for Denis Wick because that is my second favorite for both trombone and euphonium

Holton (the old models) and Marcinkiewicz (with the deeper cups) make a few good mouthpieces, but my vote goes to Bach (even though every time I by new ones I need to flatten out the rim with 2000 grit sandpaper).

Bach  Good! Strange this hated and loved mouthpiece still is the one that all others are compared. The design from that old man Bach must have had something good?
