I, an 11th grader in high school, have been a tuba player for almost 3 years (yes, a small time). I have used a few mouthpieces, some generic, thick rimmed mouthpieces. For the past year I've used a Conn Helleberg for the past year and have it to be a very good mouthpiece. With all that said, the CBAJ mouthpiece has been the best mouthpiece I've used. It feels comfortable and is not much different in shape than the Helleberg. But what is different makes it the best for me. The rim grips my face enough to play, but not so much that I canr I've my mouth if need be. It has helped my tone and tuning improve, though this could be different for other players. All in all, I would recommend this to any tuba player considering purchasing.

This is the most responsive, lightweight, beautiful sounding mouthpiece I have ever owned. There is a reason " Aronld Jacobs " is printed on the mouthpiece. I read in the description that the mouthpiece had an unlimited dynamic range. This is not a lie. My lyrical étude called for a soft start and a louder than ever, I hurt my own ears playing with a good sound. I purchased the silver plate mouthpiece, and it sounds like Jesus came down and touched me while I play. If the silver plate mouthpiece sounds like heaven, just think how the gold mouthpiece would sound.
