(24AW) The first thing I noticed with this mouthpiece is its big comfortable rim. I can play on it for hours with little fatigue on my chops. The articulation on the mouthpiece is pretty good. It's probably just a little tiny bit better than my Perantucci pt-44 (great all-around mouthpiece. I use it for everything and it works great). On the other hand, the flexibility of it isn't that admirable which is why I would recommend this mouthpiece to a beginner-intermediate level player. But I hear a lot of great things about Marcinkiewicz's ProLine Concert Hall mouthpieces for those of you feel that your an advanced player. Anyway, it?s an ok mouthpiece; I would recommend that you try it out.
I own a Miraphone 1290 CC tuba and had been playing a Conn Helleberg 120S and had been having problems with articulation and tone focus. I tried a Tommy Johnson N4 and I noticed a more focused sound and much crisper articulation. I played on it for a few hours today and I noticed I had more control through my fatigued face.
I've owned this mouthpiece for about 3 months now, and I can't say I love it. Pros: Large cup, gives off a big(ger) sound. Articulation is smooth and easy, easier than most other beginner-intermediate mouthpieces I've played on (such as helleberg, bach). Feels very comfortable on the mouth.
Cons: The range is terrible. Pedals are weak, and for me, brought down my regular high range (around F above the staff), to around Bb.
Overall I would recommend this to a middle school player looking for something other than a Helleberg.
I bought a used St. Pete (a real antique with only 3 valves) on eBay and experimented with various mouthpieces. When I found the "Model N4 Tommy Johnson" I fell in love with the tuba and the mouthpiece. With the N4 mouthpiece the tuba had a wonderful tone throughout its (somewhat limited) range. The middle-high to high register had a gorgeous singing quality. I later upgraded to a B&S tuba that's vary similar to the Miraphone 191, and the mouthpiece didn't work well on that tuba, but if you happen to play a St. Pete or similar tuba, definitely try out the Marcinkiewicz N40.
