If your Jinbao is a large bore tenor, it's a 5G.  If it's a bass, it's a 1-1/2G.  If it's a small bore tenor, it's a 12C and if it's a baritone, it's a 4.

Hm, that's odd. When I measured it, the rim was much larger than a "12C" sized rim. Wonder if mine was an accident. I'll have to see if I still have it and take it to someone with more accurate calipers.

D/Wick 9BS, great on a small bore horn and variable with the DW "Booster". Narrow enough to retain a commercial/jazz response but deep enough to fill out the lower range on a small horn.

I have owned and played mouthpieces from all the brands in the list except Velocity, all of those make good mouthpieces.

For now my favorite is Kurun & Gilbert for teonor, bass and tuba.
For me a very comfy rim and the cup and back bore works fine for me.

I love  Warburton Mouthpieces. I have played quite a few mouthpieces.I can't say I don't like any. I just have found that fort my needs and wants in sound and style I prefer the Warburton. I use a small shank with two different cups M & D ,different backbores depending on the sound or resistance I want. I use a ST  and two different backbores for all of my large bore needs.The just work better for me than anything else I've
found,so far...

These days I keep coming back to my Schilke 51. I have recently switched back to a Conn 88H and the Schilke. Someone whose opinion I respect recently commented that I had a "beautiful sound".

I really don't have a favorite, I play a Yamaha Doug Yeo Replica on Bass, a Joseph Klier on Tuba, a Conn Remington on my 88H, and a Bach 7C on my 3B.  If I had to pick one brand and stick with it I guess it would have to be Bach.

Overall, I think Doug's setups are my favorite.  However, I'm really liking the Wedge S59 I have right now.  I've got a Wedge rim on the way to put on my DE pieces; I can't wait to try that combo out.

No love for Jet-tone.?  They advertised and several artists (more trumpet but some trombone) endorsed the heck out of them in the 70s and 80s.   Perhaps the artists didn't like them as much as they let on.
