Here's what Watrous said in an interview with the Sept '94 issue of the Instrumentalist magazine:

"A lot of players use 6-1/2AL's; locally that seems to be a standard mouthpiece, especially with younger players...I find it difficult to center on them because of the shape of my face and what I'm used to.  A 6-1/2AM works better with my 36." 

He does indeed use the MV11C on his LT16M, altered in this way: "it opens up to a New York back bore similar to Bill Ratzenberger's Jet-tone mouthpieces.  It opens up the throat so the sound sails instead of being constricted."
