Very easy blowing.

It should be noted that the tip opening is only one element of the mouthpiece.  Facing length also plays an important role to the feel whilst the baffle and chamber size/shape colour the sound.
We want our comparison chart to be a comprehensive and accurate tool for players, so if you have any additions or amendments please do let us know.
