Any recommendations for A mouthpiece?

I am an 8th grader currently on my third year of playing. I am starting to move to a higher level and in search of a mouthpiece due to problems with my last one. Any suggestions?

      As an eight-grader, your best bet is a Meyer 5M, or 6M hard-rubber mouthpiece.  Part of the equation in saxophone playing is the ligature.  You will be better off with a Rovner ligature as it allows the reed to vibrate more fully.  I would not recommend a metal mouthpiece, yet.  And Jody Jazz, though a good mouthpiece, has its own inconsistencies (problems).  A meyer mouthpiece can easily be modified (souped-up) to play up to world-class standards.  Don't throw your money away.  Be smart, get yourself a good private teacher and PRACTICE ALOT!

      Best Wishes

      P.S. If you like, I can give you the name of the person who modifies the mouthpieces for the pros.
