Okay, so I know that asking what mouthpiece to use is like asking "how much does Texas weigh"! I've been playing for 20+ years but honestly just a hobby. I play some rock and roll and a little jazz every now and then. I don't own a top-line horn but the Yani does what I need for now. My problem is that it's way too "pretty". My tone is very pure and virtually has no real character. I'm playing a Meyer (think it's a 6M or something like that) and while it's a little more "dirty" than the stock C*, it's just not what I'm looking for, especially when recorded. Even when I overblow it, it's really hard to get any kind of rasp or air in the tone. Anyone want to at least point me toward the right ideas on this? I use a Link metal on my tenor and can easily get the sound I want from that thing but really have never been able to get it from Alto. I've tried a Dukoff D6 and honestly, it was just LOUDER. I'm using Vandoren JAZZ 3's. Thoughts?
