    A long time ago I switched from a 51D to a Wick SM3.5. I played the SM3.5 and the SM3U for quite a while and I think they are really good mouthpieces and might have that kind of "upgrade" feel for...

    I was in a group with a person who played a Miraphone 56A. I played it once and completely agree they have a great sound and challenging intonation. But it was a very fun instrument to play.
