Ironically, sonically (and pneumonically, mnemonically speaking). I like the 6 better, though I usually play a wider tip opening than even the 7; the last few years I've been playing a Meyer NYUSA small chamber that the great Ted Klum refaced to .088", and I just had him make me one of his pieces, also at .088". I'm playing this one now, though, good as the Klums are. A fellow saxophonist that purchased one of these pieces just sold his NYUSA 6M Medium because this plays so well. In addition to this mouthpiece sounding good, it is very easy to control, and the intonation is spot on (for a sax). I'm playing a 78k Mk VI or a 298K Super 20; my buddy is playing a gold plated 6m Conn (tranny, with same side bell keys). Frankly, the D'Addario is MUCH more in tune on his Conn-the Meyer made his pitch spread a bit (high on top, low on bottom). To wrap up, it's a really good mouthpiece-very flexible sonically, great core, excellent intonation, easy to play and control. Many Meyer-like qualities without sounding just like a Meyer. Priced very reasonably by today's standards (I bought my first NYUSA brand new for $20!). Something I can recommend to anyone without hesitation-students included. Now, if they'd just make one for tenor....!
It has a warmer tone than I was used to, but most importantly, it has a tone that remains even throughout all registers, as I had hoped. I'm still getting used to it, but it seems to be fairly versatile and definitely worth its price.

So much more open and delivers a nice thick tone and is such a joy to play on. Pitch bending notes and even playing difficult intervals (A to D with out stumbling into ghost notes or even venturing into overtones) proves to come quite easy too.
Overall very pleased with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone.
In sintesi ritengo il bocchino molto azzeccato per un suonatore in evoluzione come me, che ha bisogno di arricchire la propria esperienza sonora mantenendo però la facilità e stabilità di emissione.
Io ho scelto l'apertura D6 che trovo in realtà abbastanza chiusa, garantendo però comunque una buona sonorità. Per chi ama bocchini più aperti consiglierei sicuramente la D7 o D8.
Utilizzo questo becco in ambiti professionali di jazz e altri generi musicali e lo trovo molto soddisfacente.
