(sorry, guys, aol decided to cut me off in the midst of typing my post)
So, anyway, if I was to play F constantly as my main instrument, I would prefer to get a screwrim mouthpiece and change the cup to a bowl shape and find the best backbore to suit the F I was on while keeping the same rim on both the C and F tubas (or Eb,BBb, etc.)
I still may call Doug Elliot and have him make me one, but as I have said, what I am using now works very well for me for now. I am very interested to hear how other players approach multiple mouthpiece/multiple horn playing in their own situations.
