The new number of the Miraphone rose orchestra is TU-25. I have used this mouthpiece before an I agree with Rick. I felt that the sound was muddy and articulation was unclear. The mouthpiece had a very round rim, which I don't like now. However, I did play on the mouthpiece for several years before coming to this discovery.
You may want to look at a few more miraphone mouthpieces before ordering the rose orchestra. The following have the same inside cup diameter as the rose solo that you have been using but has a deeper cup.
TU27 shallow cup 33mm diameter 8.2 bore (This is the Rose solo)
TU29 very deep cup 33mm diameter 8.2 bore (same bore size as the solo)
TU31 deep cup 33mm diameter 8.3 bore (helleberg style)
These measurements came from a Miraphone Mouthpiece information sheet that I recently came accross; I have now idea where to get them from. The brasswind carry miraphone mouthpieces.
