    The 4C is widely respected by members of this forum. Interesting, these MPC try outs. Good
    Luck!

Eventually, I'll try to get back to the M9, just to see what the difference sounds like, but the 4C might be it, for awhile.
    Hi Darrell, When is your tech going to be able to look at it again? That's a real pain, but at least it plays ok.

    I now am a big Fan..I always had S/A/T tenor metalite mpcs laying around for yrs, but I always had better stuff too, so I never really played them much. Recently I sold 'em all off.

    For whatever reason I had never tried a Metalite on my Bari's..my history was Selmer, Link and Runyon on the big horn.

    Today I just got a M7 Metalite for my recently acquired cheapo ROC Milwakee Bari. Woah..this one sounds real good to me and at (.105-.110 ?) seems very comfortable to play. My old Plasticover 2.5's are a bit soft. I just ordered a Rico orange 3 Pak #3's and a #3 Fibracell. Hoping for a good result with the new reeds.

    Amazing mpc for a 25. dollar bill.

    I won't sell this thing. Although I am scoping the V16 and RPC offerings..


    Btw the Dove Gray mpc looks quite stunning against the Black nickel and 18K golden keys on my Cathouse model horn

    Heh heh heh. Another convert. I play an M11 on my tenor, but I really like the Metalite on my The Martin bari. Honkin' those low notes. I think Metalites and baris are well-suited.

    These things are so cheap I'm ordering a baritone M9 for fun..ebay's got one for a measly $21. shipped..honestly I never truly felt the love on the other sax Metalite models, but the Bari Metalite has produced a really good tone for me. I've only started the reed dance so I figure having both M7-M9 should accommodate any reed strength issues.

    Martin that M11 you got is worth Gold right ?? I'm still playing my old (newly re-faced) Super King on tenor..

    As a follow-up to my earlier reply regarding tenor vs. alto pieces: my daughter still loves her tenor M7, and uses it when she wants to dirty up her sound more than the Selmer is capable of. The M5 alto mouthpiece, however, just doesn't work for her. There was speculation earlier in the thread that the Metalites are particularly effective with the lower-voiced horns, and this has been our experience...
