    Listening to JD Allen and low price convinced me to try out a T8. What a great piece! One of the most versatile tenor mouthpieces I've ever tried. Can play warm/full sounding on one tune, then loud/edgy on the next without changing the set-up. A real giant killer. I am playing this piece over all my custom/hand-made tenor pieces. Love it!

    Woah, just reread this thread after picking up another T8. I rotated away from the original one I picked up as referenced earlier in this thread (9 years ago, ha!). Times change, though, and I was looking for a better match for my horn after switching to a different neck late last year. I remembered what i liked about these in the first place! Easy to play, lots of body to the sound, flexible, reed friendly. I like my collection of rpcs, but those are all a bit more specific in their tone and tend to be more particular with reeds. The T8 is a lot friendlier to pick up and play if you've been doubling on other horns. Still a good bargain....

    I played a T6 for a while but moved to a T8 about 6 months ago. It gave me the extra volume and the ability to bring out some more edge and brightness on call. And it is just so comfortable. Using DSJ 3M Unfiled reeds and am just loving everything about it.

    I just changed from a T6 to a T8 as well. Amazing how easy the T8 plays and the sound is fuller than the T6. It really is a fun piece to play.

    I was playing the V16 T6 in metal. I found I liked the T6 rubber better. So much so that I moved up to the T8. WOW.

    Have played a HR V16 T7 - I found it to be loud and quite bright, I was kinda of thinking it would be darker. To me not a very refined sound either. I've since switched to a Morgan Jazz 8L and I'm loving it...

    I used to play a T8 several yrs ago & it was in the middle tonewise. I just bought a T9 from a SOTW member & it is much brighter, although I'm still getting used to it.

    Perhaps a contributing factor is that the T8 and T9 have different facing lengths.
    T8- long
    T9- medium long
    My wife, whose ears I trust, said that my sound is much fuller, richer, more powerful and resonant on this set up.
    ... but really folks... my wife said, " It sounds like a saxophone ".
