MRP CC Shank and mouthpiece recommendation

Postby ASmith » Fri Sep 01, 2017 12:35 pm

Just bought a MrP and I notice my monette doesn't really fit, I tried a student MMVI euro and it seemed to work well. However it also seemed to hang out pretty far. I know it's similar to the pt6, but I could use a little help.

The mouthpiece I've liked best (so far) in the MRP CC is the Mr. P Premium 5.0 I only spent a little time with it; I liked it better than the Perantucci PT-50; it seemed to respond more clearly and centered. I couldn't say why, or what the difference might be.

I work part time for Potenza/JustforBrass, I'll keep that in mind. I can probably get away with using my tester for a little while.

I may be wrong, but I though the PT receivers were a size in between the Euro and American shank. I know a few folks make shanks in an in between size like that. I think Bloke (Joe Sellmansberger) and Doug Elliot both have shanks in that range.

Mine are labeled - inexplicably and enigmatically - "P" shanks. :|

Unlike other tuba mouthpiece designers, though, I won't attempt to blame "other stuff" on why you don't like my mouthpieces. :lol:

I've always thought that was the dumbest thing ever.
"Our mouthpieces allow you to play with proper posture, because they are over priced and gold-plated."

I bought mine used from a friend, I like it. However the backbore is kind of weird and the shank is really short.

Blokepiece is the way to go. Joe will find something that works perfectly for your needs.

The Stofer Geib works wonders on my Neptune (PT-7 with rotors) in conjunction with the larger leadpipe (it comes with two pipes). It has a slightly smaller throat than usual. It also fits the receiver just right, I believe. I don't know if that same success would translate on to the MRP.
