bbone1 you're running out of different mouthpieces to try! You think you'll ever find your Rushmore?

I think I am all set now, but I really wanted something that kept up the good qualities of the Hammond but allowed me to have some more flexibility in sound. Many great options out there.

I've done simple play tests versus my old go to's once in a while and I'll keep playing the GB 1G 2.0 for the next year/season.

When we start going into the nuances of timbre, flexibility of sound, etc. I am reminded of an old piano accompanist/organist that I worked with years ago and highly respected (and still do). During a rehearsal for a recital (it may have been the Hindemith Three Pieces for cello), after listening to me try different styles of articulation and phrasing and comparing the renditions of different cellists, he simply replied "It just sounds like a bass trombone to me."

Wise words.

As always, play in tune, on time, and with a good sound.
