Thanks William, I’m using a fairly high baffle mouthpiece and a pretty soft reed (select jazz 2 soft). Usually I play a 3 medium but I thought I’d try a softer reef just to see how it sounded (plus bitting the low notes was much easier!!).
I remember back in the years not knowing about baffles etc I showed up in Jazz Camp with a T-95 mouthpiece. The band leader who was head of Jazz studies at Webster college in St Louis almost kicked me out of the band
Lol! Yeah I hear ya, when I first started playing sax I took some lessons from a local player who had that cool rock and roll gritty sound. In the first lesson he looked at my mouthpiece (typical student model “low baffle” piece) and started laughing. I got a full lesson on mouthpiece design that day, but he let me use one of his berg’s which made a huge difference the sound.
