I am normally a tenor player, but I was looking for an inexpensive baritone piece to use. This really hit the spot! I've been using the M7 for pit orchestra playing, a horn section in a band, and for a jazz band. I'm sure I could maybe get a little bit better of a sound from an expensive mouthpiece, but I don't like having to deal with all the imperfections of metal mouthpieces. The metalite is suited for any situation, and produces a nice tone easily and without fuss. It's on the bright side, and the baffle is high like a guardala. This makes it much easier to blow, so I would definitely recommend increasing in tip opening if you're coming from a piece without a high baffle. If you are used to somewhere around an otto link 7*, I would recommend the M9. the M5, M7, and M9 have tip openings of .095, .105, and .115 respectively. The price makes this a no-brainer, and it's a good backup piece to have, as well.
I've got the M5 opening, which I measured at 98 mils; but I'm ordering the M7, which should be about 10 mils more open.
The Rico may look a bit cheap but the workmanship is outstanding and very consistent. It compares favorably to metal pieces costing 8 or 10 times more. It requires a standard rubber tenor ligature and I'm using a fibracell #3 reed.
I decided to try a wider (M9) facing and am very pleased with the Rico. It has great power and although not as easy to control, is responsive at low volume. I bought the Rico to try the facing and because it was VERY inexpensive. This was an experiment but it soon became my mouthpiece of choice.
I bought an M9 a few months ago. The M9 is a fairly wide opening. Well, I don't have the grizzled embouchure of more veteran players, but it worked with Vandoren 2.5's.
It is a worthwhile piece for the price.
If you're looking to be heard in pep band, marching band, or seedy rock venues, it is worth a look.
This thing roars.
It is grey (or at least, mine is--not sure why the picture is black), has a high baffle, and rather narrow chamber. It is the thin-style, so a ligature for a metal bari mouthpiece should suit it fine.
I would recommend it to most: the Metalite is the best starting point for a "jazz mouthpiece experience." Your horn will scream, and it costs about as much as the tax on those gold-plated things.
