I only have one tuba an old Boosey & Hawkes Eb (similar to the Besson 982). Depending on what I am playing I use one of two mouthpieces. If I am playing with the local orchestra or concert band, where I am playing mostly in the low register of the horn and need a fuller tone, I use a Dennis Wick 2. When playing in my quintet or tubaeuph quartet (where i play the high tuba part) I use a Dennis Wick 4 (which is very small). The two different mouthpieces can really make a difference in the sound. This horn is really very versitile in this way. The Denis Wick Mouthpieces work very well with the Boosey. I am sorry to hear you had to "settle for" an Eb. I am sold them. No offense taken here but a comment like that could bring out some merciless responses around here! :) ken k
