Dear all

Most of my kids are on YHA30C4's which came with their 567's. Firstly can anyone fathom why yamaha put a such a useless mp in with their instruments ? I can only asume it is so that you throw it away and buy a bigger one from them but it does seem like a terrible waste of the world's resources.

Secondly, I'm going to change them to PHC's or more likely 4B's (no offence gents) but can anyone give me their opinion on specs for a decent MOR mouthpiece. 23 or 24 ? A or not ? as rim etc ?

Jez

The most popular, best 'all-round' PHC combination of cup and rim, and the best-selling, is:
23A cup
AS rim
Compared to the Paxman 4B the 23A cup has 'less of a cup, more of a funnel', a slightly larger bore (4.8mm compared to 4.5MM) and the AS rim gives more support to the emboucure. :D
