    While I haven't tried those ones yet, I did briefly try out one of their James Jackson mouthpieces at ITEC last year. I think they're supposed to officially released soon, as it looks like they're showcasing them at the US Army Tuba-Euph conference this weekend.

    I remember liking how comfortable it felt and the response/projection on my Willson 2900.
    Willson 2900 TA-1 Euphonium - Denis Wick 4AM
    Yamaha YSL-643 Trombone - Bob Reeves BrassArk 5G "Gladstone"
    Yamaha YSL-8440 Trombone - Denis Wick 5BS
    VMI 3301S BBb Tuba - Schilke Helleberg

    Past:
    York Preference 3067 Euphonium - Denis Wick 4AL
    Benge 165F Trombone - Benge Marcellus
    Wessex BR140 Baritone - Denis Wick 6BS
    F.E. Olds Special Trombone (ca. 1941)

          I have one - I got the 290, 3.5G-5GD. I like it quite a bit.

          Sharper rim than something like the demondrae, but it still sounds good, and I have a good amount of flexibility.

          I do wonder what it would be like with a slightly lighter blank - I prefer a little more feedback on the chops.

          I'm going to keep playing it for a while just to make sure I still like it.

            Thanks for the info! How does the weight compare to the demondrae?

              Pretty close. The Greg black is 190 grams.
