    Ponzol M2 / 110 - Brass does the trick on the kinds of tunes the OP was describing. I'm also using Series II Cleveland Super 20 tenor.

    I'm seconds away from getting a Phil-Tone Eclipse. I've been emailing back and forth with Phil and I think this piece will do the trick.

    Whatever you decide to buy also buy a Metalite, it's worth to try it out at that price.

    Something that tastes like scotch.

    The one that tastes like wine is my Jazz set-up.
    Just two questions: Where's the Bar located relative to the stage, and does the band get a discount?

    I use a Jody Jazz HR* in a 7* for everything these days, and I do a lot of funk/soul, rock, jazz, and fusion. Here's me playing it on a funk tune.

    That was cool - I should try one of those. I played a Berg for years, then went through the usual big-tip high-baffle suspects (Guardala, RPC, etc.), then discovered several months ago that I need only the amount of baffle in the metal FocusTone .105. Stock STM doesn't have enough for me.

    It does now!

    Thanks again. It's actually more reliable than the Barone Bullet chamber these days! I've used it on a few gigs with my back-up horn lately. It freakin SCREAMS!!!

    BTW, Anybody out there liking a real ballsy Dukoff sound should give the dead ones to Mojo for rejuvenation. It comes back the way it was! It's like ****** for a mouthpiece!

    I was wondering what six letter word that was.

    Brilhart Personaline hard rubber or Link Tone Master or Link STM or Steamer Pres or Brilhart Ebolin or a Berg 0.
    All have their own sound colours and characteristics and serve me well for the old school growling R&B stuff
    on my ol' trusty 10M or on a NW as backup. Surprisingly the Personaline although being dark sounding is the loudest and most flexible
    of them all.

    On tenor, sometimes an SS Berg 130/1 for volume. The best all around piece, and my favorite, is an offset M Berg SS 100/2 which is brighter and more focused than the 130. I also have a NY Link 9*that MOJO added a small baffle to that I like for a fatter sound. On Bari, a Berg SS 120/3. All with 2 1/2 Fibracells.

    Right now I'm using a Jody Jazz DV 7* w/ Rico H ligature.

    Used to use a Guardala Studio w/ Rovner lig, and preferred that to my current setup - more volume with lots of balls, less edge than the DV.

    Drake NY Metal, .115 tip opening for most of my playing (rock, r&b, blues). An RPC .125B if I feel the need for "more"... Plasticover 3/3.5 bari reeds.
    More stuff than I need, less than I want.

    I have used dukoffs and bergs most of my life for r/r r/b stuff but lately in love with a metal beechler.

    I use a metal Brilhart mouthpiece, I can't remember what size or number or anything because it was given to me and it has played better than any other jazz mouthpiece I have tried. I previously used a Vandoren V16 mouthpiece.

    Phil-Tone Equinox on an 82z. Like a Link but a bit brighter and more focused. I also have a Florida Link and a Saxscape Slant, but the Phil-Tone beats them both. I like my RPC on my VI when playing jazz, but the Z + Phil Tone is great for rock/R&B/Soul/Funk. My R&B band loves the sound much better than the RPC.
