Conn S? Very interesting, never heard of that one! I use a Denis Wick 5 on my little Orsi Eb; whatever comes to hand on my Holton 109, but lately that would often be a Marcinkiewicz H1; crystal blue Kellyberg or Faxx Hb on Conn 40K and Kellyberg on King 1240.

I'm playing on a Kanstul Grand Orchestral C prototype with the original Canadian Brass model (warburton) and the Kanstul Grand Orchestral F prototype with an F-1 mouthpiece. I really like both for the two. The Kanstul F has a larger bore for an F, it can fit any mouthpiece but that mouthpiece seems to go well with it.

Conn Monster Eb 1914, Wick 3CC. This old monster Eb responds much better to deep funnel cups than to bowl cups, and the 3CC is the same rim and cup diameter as the regular Wick 3.
